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."
