Schmidt v. Shah, No. 08-2185, 2010 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 25539 (D.D.C. Mar. 18, 2010) (Kollar-Kotelly, J.). Plaintiff "argues that he should be entitled to relief because USAID was not timely in its production of documents in response to his requests.  However, 'a lack of timeliness or compliance with FOIA deadlines does not preclude summary judgment for an agency, nor mandate summary judgment for the requester.' . . .  Moreover, to the extent that [plaintiff] seeks as a sanction monetary relief such as a fee waiver, his claim is not authorized by FOIA."
