Chase v. DOJ, No. 17-274, 2018 WL 5923914 (D.D.C. Nov. 13, 2018) (Boasberg, J.)
Re: Request for records concerning plaintiff's arrest, booking, and detention
Disposition: Denying plaintiff's request for reconsideration
- Litigation Considerations: "As the arguments and evidence presented are neither new nor persuasive, the Court will deny [plaintiff's] Motion." First, the court finds that "Plaintiff's argument casts no shade on the Court's prior reasoning in upholding Exemption 3 here, which covers records 'specifically exempted from disclosure by statute.'" Second, "[t]he Court already concluded in its prior Opinion that USMS properly applied this exemption." "To combat this, Plaintiff needed to explain why 7(C) does not reach the names withheld." "This [plaintiff] failed to do." Third, "[t]he Court explained at length in its prior Opinion why the steps Defendants took to search for responsive records were adequate." "[Plaintiff] has offered nothing to entice the Court to reconsider this issue." Fourth, the court finds that "[plaintiff] offers no new arguments or evidence of bad faith."
