Dear Ms. Fagan:
This is a request for public records. I understand you are General Counsel for the Fifth Judicial
Circuit, Florida. I am writing to you in that capacity. My name is Neil J. Gillespie, reluctantly
appearing pro se in the above cited (wrongful) foreclosure of my home on a reverse mortgage.
Currently there is an open case in this matter with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau
(CFPB), Complaint No. 140304-000750. Inadvertently I neglected to include this information in
my letter to Curtis Wilson November 17, 2014, a copy of which is attached as filed in the case.
1.

Provide records of your job description as General Counsel. (See enclosed example)

2.

Provide records of a Foreclosure Bench Book for Reverse Mortgage. Doris BermudezGoodrich, Assistant General Counsel for the Eleventh Judicial Circuit, prepared a
Foreclosure Bench Book 2013 with the Hon. Jennifer D. Bailey, found online at the link

I have not been able to locate a Reverse Mortgage Foreclosure Bench Book.

automated system like JAWS, the Judicial Automated Workflow System?

Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and a separate motion for appointment of
counsel as provided in my letter to Curtis Wilson dated November 17, 2014.
A telephone number for contacting the Office of General Counsel.
