Hudspeth v. DOJ, No. 16-703, 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 79295 (D.D.C. June 13, 2016) (Cooper, J.)
Re: Plaintiff's allegations concerning exculpatory evidence
Disposition: Dismissing plaintiff's complaint
- Litigation Considerations, Pleadings: The court holds that "[t]he plaintiff's complaint will be dismissed." "The Court has reviewed the complaint and concludes that it does not state a claim under . . . the Freedom of Information Act . . .." "Rather, the plaintiff's demands for information arise from the defendants' alleged refusal to disclose exculpatory evidence in order that the plaintiff could have presented it in a timely motion under 28 U.S.C. § 2255 to demonstrate his actual innocence of the crimes for which he had been convicted."
