Kibbe v. U.S., No. 18-1292, 2018 U.S. App. LEXIS 27464 (6th Cir. Sept. 25, 2018) (per curiam)

Re:  Request for records concerning Marine officer and unit

Disposition:  Affirming district court's grant of government's motion for summary judgment

  • Litigation Considerations, Vaughn Index / Declaration:  The Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit holds that the government's "declaration is sufficient to show that the government undertook a reasonable search for the requested information."  "It states the locations searched, the methods used, how [the government] identified the correct documents, how they were obtained, and what information was redacted."  "[The requester's] conclusory assertions that spy activities existed are not evidence of bad faith."
