Disposition: Denying plaintiff's motion for in camera review

  • Litigation Considerations, In Camera Inspection:  The court "agree[s] with Plaintiff that in some circumstances in camera review would be warranted, and of course it is authorized by the statute itself."  "But here the government's affidavits reveal a sincere effort to explain the alleged discrepancies, which means the case (at this stage) is no different from the mine run of FOIA cases in which in camera review and discovery are not undertaken."
