Re: Complaint requesting that court order defendant to release income tax returns of third parties, release certain checks, and create and release certain affidavits Disposition: Granting defendant's motion to dismiss
  • Litigation Considerations, Exhaustion of Administrative Remedies:  The court finds that "[a]lthough the FOIA is the only statute that could waive sovereign immunity for claims seeking to compel a federal agency to release documents, Plaintiff has expressly stated that he 'has no remedy under FOIA'" and "[n]or does Plaintiff allege that he has exhausted his administrative remedies under the FOIA prior to seeking judicial review."
