Re: Request for presentence investigation report

Disposition: Approving and adopting Magistrate Judge's report and recommendation; denying petition for writ of habeas corpus

  • Procedural Considerations, Entities Subject to the FOIA:  Regarding plaintiff's argument "that trial counsel was ineffective for failing to provide him with the pre-sentence investigation report, resulting in a violation of his due process rights," the court adopted the magistrate's holding that "[t]o the extent Petitioner argues that counsel's failure to provide him with the presentence investigation report violated the Freedom of Information Act, . . . such a claim fails because the Act applies to federal, not state, agencies."
