Estevez v. EOUSA, No. 15-2941, 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 116835 (S.D. Cal. Aug. 30, 2016) (Battaglia, J.)
Re: Request for records concerning plaintiff
Disposition: Granting plaintiff's motion to proceed in forma pauperis
- Litigation Considerations, Pleadings: "Upon review, the Court finds [plaintiff's] pleading survives the 'low threshold' for proceeding past the sua sponte screening required by 28 U.S.C. §§ 1915(e)(2) and 1915A(b)." The court relates that "[plaintiff] asserts documents were wrongfully withheld despite his FOIA requests, and attaches documentation demonstrating documents were withheld under exemptions to FOIA."
