Kelly v. Hayes, No. 17-10962, 2017 WL 2242509 (E.D. Mich. May 23, 2017) (Ludington, J.)
Re: Request for records concerning compensation to My Brother's Keeper ("MBK") for housing and feeding plaintiff
Disposition: Dismissing plaintiff's complaint
- Procedural Requirements, Entities Subject to the FOIA: The court holds that, "[b]ecause MBK is not subject to the FOIA, Plaintiff['s] . . . complaint fails to state a claim upon which relief can be granted." The court finds that "[t]he mere fact that a private organization receives federal funds and enjoys some control over their use does not render that organization an agency under FOIA."
