Medina v. Title 5 USC 552, No. 14-349, 2015 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 38444 (D. Neb. Mar. 26, 2015) (Gerrard, J.)

Re: Plaintiff's attempt to sue the FOIA for being too broad

Disposition: Granting plaintiff thirty days in which to file amended complaint

  • Litigation Considerations:  The court "give[s] Plaintiff 30 days in which to file an amended complaint that clearly sets forth his claims for relief and names a proper defendant."  The court explains that "[p]laintiff has sued a federal statute and charges it with being 'too broad.'"  "Plaintiff does not allege how he, personally, has been injured by the statute or what relief he seeks."  "Indeed, it is entirely unclear what the case or controversy is in this matter."  "If Plaintiff fails to file an amended complaint in accordance with this order, this case will be dismissed without prejudice and without further notice."
