Re: Request for records concerning two charges filed by plaintiff

Disposition: Adopting Magistrate Judge's Report and Recommendation; granting defendant's motion for summary judgment

  • Exemptions 5, 6 & 7(C):  "[T]he court reviews the R&R for clear error and finds none."  The court also finds that "[p]laintiff's objections are therefore 'not specific enough' to warrant de novo review."  The court agrees with the Magistrate Judge who "found that Defendant's redactions were warranted under Exemptions 6 and 7(C), and that the two [requested] memoranda were 'pre-decisional' and thus fell within the scope of Exemption 5."
