Re: Initial review of pro se plaintiff's claims under the FOIA Disposition: Determining that plaintiff's complaint survives initial review and ordering service on defendants
  • Motion to dismiss:  The court finds that plaintiff's claims survive frivolity review.  "Plaintiff has sufficiently alleged that [d]efendants have refused to provide him with documents for which he is entitled under the FOIPA."  "Although it does appear that some documents are clearly exempt from disclosure, it is not clear that all are exempt."
