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."
