Re:  Request for certain records concerning alleged surveillance of plaintiff

Disposition:  Dismissing plaintiff's complaint

  • Litigation Considerations, Pleadings:  The court relates that [a]lthough [plaintiff's] thirty-six-page complaint avers that the Department of Justice committed numerous unlawful acts against him – ranging from surveilling him to planting 'poisonous sp[i]ders' in his room, . . . none of [plaintiff's] allegations raise any deficiencies as to the Department's handling of his FOIA request."  "As such, the Court concludes that 'there is indisputedly no factual or legal basis' for concluding that either OIP or the Deputy Attorney General unlawfully withheld documents under FOIA."
