Re: Request for records concerning surveillance of requester Disposition: Affirming district court's grant of defendant's motion to dismiss for lack of subject matter jurisdiction
  • Litigation Considerations, Jurisdiction:  The court "reviewed the record and find[s] no reversible error."  The district court previously granted defendant's motion to dismiss for lack of subject matter jurisdiction by agreeing with defendant's contention that the district court "lack[ed] jurisdiction over this case because it is frivolous, and it has not withheld any documents."
