Re: Request for records concerning H.R. 3190 and/or Public Law 80-772

Disposition: Granting defendants' motion for summary judgment

  • Litigation Considerations, Adequacy of Search: "[T]he Court concludes that the agency has satisfied its FOIA obligations and is entitled to judgment as a matter of law." The court finds that defendants' "declarants set forth facts sufficient to enable the Court to conclude that the defendants made the necessary good faith effort, and that it was reasonable to expect that the methods utilized would have produced the requested information." The court also finds that "[p]laintiff has not in any way refuted defendants' declarations, and he has not contested the no-records responses."
