Re: Request for records concerning plaintiff

Disposition: Granting defendant's motion for summary judgment

  • Litigation Considerations, Exhaustion of Administrative Remedies:  The court holds that "defendant has demonstrated that the plaintiff failed to pay the assessed fees and thus failed to exhaust his administrative remedies before filing this lawsuit."  The court relates that "plaintiff was advised in writing of the estimated fees . . . further was advised that the BOP would release the responsive records only after he paid the fees."  "Since then, the BOP neither has received correspondence from the plaintiff, nor payment of the assessed fees, nor a request for wavier of the fees."
