Re: Request for information about President's Management Council Disposition: Granting defendant's motion to dismiss
  • Litigation Considerations, Mootness and Other Grounds for Dismissal:  The court holds that plaintiff's action is moot because "a FOIA program analyst responded to [plaintiff's] request by producing the requested documentation."
  • Attorneys Fees:  The court finds that "[s]uch a dismissal, however, does not negate [plaintiff's] right to seek recovery of reasonable litigation costs pursuant to 5 U.S.C. § 552(a)(4)(E)."  The court advised that "[i]f [plaintiff] intends to pursue recovery of his litigation costs, he must file a motion."
