(June 2024) Request for New York City Criminal Court: Related to Oath of Office and Surety Bond for Judge Phyillis Chu

Good evening Christopher, Judge Chu, (or Records Officer / Custodian(s) of these Records),

Please reply promptly to the following public records request, which I’m making in accordance with FOIA and FOIL.

To:
New York Supreme Court, Criminal Term
100 Centre Street
New York, NY 10013

Specifically related to Judge Phyillis Chu. Please provide the electronic copy of her current Oath of Office, and her Public Official Surety Bond [and or Surety Liability Insurance Policy] that is required to be purchased before taking the Oath of Office.

I believe that the Public Official Surety Bond or the Surety Liability Insurance Policy falls under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. § 552, The Sunshine Act 5 U.S.C. § 552b, and that, by law you are obligated to supply me with this information.

** I’m simply requesting an electronic copy of an electronic record, if one exists. I’m NOT asking for the opportunity to come in person to “inspect”, nor to obtain a printed copy of, this electronic record. I’m requesting explicitly that any responsive info be provided to me via the electronic medium / electronic format (in which the copy of this record already exists). If you are unable to fulfill any or all parts of this request, please specifically cite where a reason for denial is justified under any public records laws, statutes, etc. **
————————————

Please note that by submitting this request, I’m NOT agreeing to pay any potential fees or associated costs related to my request. If it isn’t possible to process the request without incurring fees, then please let me know the itemized potential cost and clear explanations of those charges upfront, and DO NOT proceed until I respond.

In order to move things along, I’d like to clarify that this request is being made by:

Sunshine Request
PO Box 17391
Asheville, NC 28816

The request has been sent solely by me and my email address [email protected] . If anyone other than that email address contacts you to pursue a similar request, it did not come from me. Please do not commingle or treat that as an alteration or cancellation of my request – I intend to continue to pursue my request.

Thank you for your assistance!
