District Court Decisions

Nelson v. U.S. Army, No. 10-1735, 2011 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 17193 (N.D. Ill. Feb. 22, 2011) (Pallmeyer, J.).  As to plaintiff's claim that "Defendant failed to make timely determinations regarding his FOIA appeals," the court finds that "an order granting the Army additional time to complete its review of Plaintiff's request or compelling prompt compliance would be moot," because "[d]efendant has now responded to Plaintiff's FOIA requests."  Furthermore, the court notes that "[p]laintiff has not suggested any other remedy, and the statute does not authorize any award of damages for the delay."
