Editor’s Note: Sunshine Request makes no claim as to the veracity of any statements or information contained in any of the requests, or public records, we receive.

Editor’s Note 05/28/24: The submission above has been marked as “Completed”. As written it is unclear what specific public records the sender would like to receive, and to what specific person / entity the responsive records should apply.

– It is unclear what is meant by “… copies of public records for DELEGATION OF AUTHORITY FROM CONGRESS and JUDICIARY ACT to decide legal matters on behalf of the STATE“.  If this is the literal title of a document you’re aware of and you think that North Carolina Administrative Office of the Courts (https://www.nccourts.gov/public-records-request) will know what this refers to, that is fine. However, as it is written, our team wasn’t sure what this phrase means.

– Is this a request for records specifically related to “North Carolina Administrative Office of the Courts (NCAOC)” ? Or, is it meant to be a narrower request about someone / some other entity / other branch specifically?

– It is unclear what other “… copies of public records”  you’d like to receive. Is this meant to be a request just for a copy of “… delegation of authority to decide legal matters on behalf of the State of North Carolina” ? Or, are there other specific records you’re hoping to receive as well?

Please specify the exact records you’d like to receive, rather than any “possible” or “potential” info that could be searched. Clarifying the specific records you’re seeking will help to greatly narrow the scope of the request, and will also reduce the amount of time it takes the Disclosing Agency (as well as our team) to process the request.

Please feel free to revise and submit a new request through our website. Please clearly indicate any specific details, subject, message, dates, record types, City / County / State, etc. about the exact public records that are being requested.


Sunshine Request will not fulfill the following types of requests:

☀️ Requests that are only informational questions, and requests that are not addressed to government entities.

Sunshine Request is a site built to make requests for public records to the government — Public records are recorded information such as documents, government emails, and data sets.

In the interest of preserving our team’s time to focus on the high volume of requests on our site, as well to respect the staff time of government entities fulfilling records requests, Sunshine Request will no longer fulfill “requests” that are just informational type questions for government entities to answer.

We also will not fulfill requests made to non-government entities.

It’s the requester’s responsibility to write the request in a manner that clearly specifies a record that is being requested, and to what government entity it should be sent.

☀️ Requests that are incomplete, non-specific, or vague.

While we do proofread requests we receive for general spelling and clarity, we may choose not to fulfill the request if it is incomplete, overly broad, or it is unclear what specific information the requester hopes to receive. In this case, the sender may rewrite and resubmit the request.

It’s the requester’s responsibility to write the request in a manner that clearly specifies a record that is being requested, and to what government entity it should be sent.

☀️ Please be specific:

It is important that what you are requesting is specific and reasonable, and is an actionable records request. Please specify the exact type of records you’d like to receive, rather than any “possible” or “potential” info that could be searched. Remember that the larger your request, the more time it usually takes to fulfill. Specificity will often help reduce the amount of time needed to process the request.

It is important that a request has a clearly written and complete Subject and Message, and also specifies the Government Entity (or entities), City and/or County, and State to which the request should be sent. If applicable, please also include any responsive timelines for the info that should be requested.

While we do proofread requests we receive for general spelling and clarity, we may choose not to fulfill the request if it is incomplete, or it is unclear what specific info the requester hopes to receive, or if it violates our policies.

Before submitting a request, please take a moment to review our tips for How to write and make a successful request. If you have additional questions about our site or how to make requests, please check out our FAQs or Policies page.

☀️ Code of Conduct: Please do not use Sunshine Request or any of the results of public records requests to harass government entities / employees, businesses, private citizens / individuals, or otherwise.

☀️ Please note that we cannot pay any fees / associated costs related to any of the requests on our site. If it is not possible for a Government Agency to process our request without incurring fees, then it is the responsibility of that Agency to let us know what the potential costs may be — at which point we will ask that they cease processing the request. We will mark the request as “Completed” on our site, and the sender can contact the Government Agency directly, should they wish to further pursue a request.

Thank you for using Sunshine Request!
