Dear Mr Valdez

I refer to your email below requesting specified documents under the
Freedom of Information Act 1982 (the FOI Act).  

Documents that are by their character documents of a Judge do not respond
to the FOI Act. Accordingly, I cannot process under the FOI Act your
request for any document(s) provided by the Chief Justice.

Nor does the Family Court of Australia hold in an administrative capacity
any other documents described in your request. Mr Phillips is employed by
the Federal Court.  
Regards
