Re: Request for information plaintiff provided to FBI

Disposition: Holding that plaintiff's amended complaint may proceed

  • Litigation Considerations, Pleadings:  The court holds that "[l]iberally construing the amended complaint, as the court must, [plaintiff] states what appears to be a cognizable FOIA claim."  The court explains that "[t]he amended complaint specifically names as defendants the FBI and the Department of Justice."  However, the court also finds that "[a]ll other defendants as named in the original complaint and those referred to in the amended complaint as 'the other defendants [who] range from law enforcement agencies to private individuals' will be dismissed."
