Re: Request for records concerning certain mine
Disposition: Denying plaintiff's motion to expedite discovery
- Litigation Considerations, Discovery: The court holds that "[t]he motion [for discovery] is denied." "[Plaintiff's] reliance on 5 U.S.C. § 552(a)(6)(E) is misplaced." "That [portion of the] statute [regarding expedited processing] is inapplicable." "It does not apply to discovery."
- Litigation Considerations, Preliminary Injunctions: The court holds that, "[t]o the extent [plaintiff] has moved for a preliminary injunction . . . the request for relief is also denied." "He has failed to show, inter alia, a likelihood of success on the merits or irreparable injury."
