Re: Gillespie complaint against Mark Sean Hamilton; RFA No. 16-13675
Attorney discipline by suspension or disbarment protects the public from bad lawyers
Dear Mr. Harkness and Ms. Brewer,
This is not a request for review by Shanell Schuyler et al.

My complaint against Mark Sean Hamilton was limited to matters of discipline of attorneys
(ethics) admitted to practice in Florida. Article V, Section 15, of the Florida Constitution states,
SECTION 15. Attorneys; admission and discipline.The supreme court shall have
exclusive jurisdiction to regulate the admission of persons to the practice of law and the
discipline of persons admitted.
The Florida Supreme Court has exclusive jurisdiction to discipline persons admitted to practice law.
The Florida Bar, an unincorporated association, receives ethics complaints on behalf of the
Supreme Court of Florida. Enclosed is a letter from Ms. Brewer dated March 21, 2016 stating:
Your complaint regarding the above referenced attorney has been referred to me for
review.
The question of whether Mr. Hamilton has violated Florida's public records law involves
a legal question. The Florida Bar is not permitted to intervene in such matters and
therefore, resolution of those issues must be left to the court system. You are not
precluded however, from consulting private counsel, nor are you precluded from
exercising any legal remedy which may be available to you.
In light of the foregoing, our file in this matter has been closed. Pursuant to the Bar's
records retention schedule, the computer record and file of this matter will be disposed of
one year from the date of closure.

My complaint did not ask The Florida Bar to consider whether Mr. Hamilton has violated
Florida's public records law. Ms. Brewers assertion is complete nonsense.
My complaint did not ask The Florida Bar to intervene in such matters More nonsense.
My complaint did not ask The Florida Bar to address any legal question; only misconduct (ethics).

Specifically, my complaint against Mark Sean Hamilton alleged certain violations of the Rules of
Professional Conduct. Tellingly ACAP Bar Counsel Heidi E. Brewer refused to even acknowledge
any of the following violations I alleged against Mr. Hamilton:

Mark Sean Hamilton, RFA No. 16-13675

Page - 2

Rule 4-8.4(a) prohibits the lawyer from violating the Rules of Professional Conduct
or knowingly assisting another to do so.
Rule 4-8.4(b) prohibits a lawyer from committing a criminal act that reflects
adversely on the lawyer's honesty, trustworthiness, or fitness as a lawyer.
Rule 4-8.4(c) prohibits a lawyer from engaging in conduct involving dishonesty,
fraud, deceit, or misrepresentation.
Rule 4-8.4(d) prohibits a lawyer from engaging in conduct that is prejudicial to the
administration of justice.

Rule 3-4.3, Misconduct and Minor Misconduct states:


The standards of professional conduct to be observed by members of the bar are not
limited to the observance of rules and avoidance of prohibited acts, and the enumeration
herein of certain categories of misconduct as constituting grounds for discipline shall not
be deemed to be all-inclusive nor shall the failure to specify any particular act of
misconduct be construed as tolerance thereof. The commission by a lawyer of any act
that is unlawful or contrary to honesty and justice, whether the act is committed in the
course of the attorney's relations as an attorney or otherwise, whether committed within
or outside the state of Florida, and whether or not the act is a felony or misdemeanor,
may constitute a cause for discipline.
See for example, The Florida Bar v. Donald Joseph Thomas, Supreme Court Case No.
SC10-944, and The Florida Bar File No. 2010-51,555(15G).
In my view ACAP Bar Counsel Heidi E. Brewer appears to be corrupt, incompetent, or insane.
I referred this matter to the SEC Office of the Whistleblower, see attached the following letters:
SEC Whistleblower Submission No. TCR1458580189411 - Mar-21-2016
SEC Whistleblower Submission No. TCR1458580189411 - Jun-14-2016
SEC Whistleblower Submission No. TCR1458580189411 - Oct-04-2016
Mr. Hamilton is no longer employed by the Office of the Attorney General. According to his
Florida Bar profile, Hamilton is currently at the Florida Department of Revenue.
Under penalty of perjury, I declare that the foregoing facts are true, correct and complete.
Sincerely,

Dear Mr. Gillespie:

Thank you for the information that you submitted under the SEC's Whistleblower Program. We greatly
appreciate your bringing this matter to our attention. The success of the whistleblower program depends
on individuals providing the Commission with specific, timely, and credible information.
Members ofthe staff ofthe Division of Enforcement may contact you for additional assistance or
information. In addition, we encourage you to submit any additional supporting information or materials
that you believe will assist us in analyzing and fully understanding this matter.
As a matter of policy, the SEC conducts its investigations on a confidential basis. The purpose of this

appropriate circumstances, refer your matter to another regulatory or law enforcement agency.
Thank you again for taking the opportunity to submit your information to us. Efforts by persons such as

Dear Mr. Harkness:

Pamela J. Bondi, Esq. Mark S. Hamilton, Esq.

This complaint concerns two Florida lawyers, Pam Bondi and Mark Hamilton, and Floridas
$1 billion share of a Bank of America (BofA) settlement announced August 21, 2014 with the
U.S. Department of Justice. Mr. Hamilton, and Ms. Bondis office, denied Florida was part of the
BofA settlement in response to my public records request. Later I later found a letter dated August
21, 2014 from Jana Litsey, BofAs Deputy General Counsel, addressed to Pamela J. Bondi, Esq.
Florida State Attorney General, confirming details of the Bank of America settlement:
Of the $7 billion consumer relief package, we expect just in excess of $1 billion to be
effected within the state - in other words, one seventh of the entire package - benefiting
almost 17,000 Florida consumers.
Ms. Litseys letter was linked on the Florida Attorney Generals website with a press release by
Attorney General Bondi. Why then did Hamilton, and Bondis office, lie about Floridas $1 billion
share of a BofA settlement benefiting almost 17,000 Florida consumers, and where is the money?
The respondents violated the Rules Regulating The Florida Bar and Rules of Professional Conduct:

Floridians to Receive More Than $1 Billion in Relief Under National Settlement with Bank of America
TALLAHASSEE, Fla.The Justice Department has entered a settlement with Bank of
America, which will provide nearly 17,000 Floridians in excess of $1 billion in relief.
Eligible Floridians will receive first and second lien principal reductions, loan forgiveness
and other relief. The total amount of consumer relief of the settlement nationally is $7
billion, and Floridas share equals one-seventh of that total.
"Our office worked closely with Bank of America to ensure that Florida homeowners would
be treated fairly in any settlement, and Im pleased that Floridians will be receiving
one-seventh of the overall consumer relief. As a result of the Justice Department's
settlement with Bank of America, it's expected that Florida will receive just over $1 billion
in homeowner relief, benefiting nearly 17,000 Florida homeowners, stated Attorney
General Pam Bondi.
We very much appreciate the extensive investment of time spent by you and your staff in
discussions with the Bank concerning the types and quantity of consumer relief to be
delivered to Florida residents as part of any settlement with the U.S. Department of
Justice, stated Jana J. Litsey, Deputy General Counsel with Bank of America, in a letter to
Attorney General Bondi.
The federal settlement addresses abuses primarily by Countrywide and Merrill Lynch
which greatly contributed to the mortgage crisis. These companies securitized residential
mortgage loans that had been obtained without ensuring that the borrowers could actually
afford the mortgages. They then sold them to investors as so-called residential mortgagebacked securities without disclosing the significant risk that the borrowers holding the
mortgages were unable to stay current on their loans because many of the loans had been
written without proper review to ensure that the borrowers could actually afford the loans.
Bank of America acquired Countrywide and Merrill Lynch shortly before the financial
crisis that resulted from unprecedented defaults on the ill-advised residential mortgage
loans sold to investors around the country.

Our office previously issued its response to your public records request. An additional copy is
provided below for your records. As noted in our response, the text of the press release that
you sent to us identifies that the settlement pertains to the following:
"The settlement resolves certain actual and potential civil claims by the DoJ, the

Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and State Attorneys General from

Consequently, our Office does not have any documents responsive to your specific request. This will
