Re: Records pertaining to a deceased CIA officer Disposition: Granting defendant's motion to dismiss as moot
  • Mootness: The CIA previously withheld certain pieces of information under Exemptions 1, 2, and 3. After the Supreme Court issued its opinion in Milner v. Department of Navy, "our Circuit remanded the matter back to this Court so that the CIA could file a supplemental declaration stating whether the other exemptions covered the information previously withheld under Exemption 2." The CIA submitted a supplemental declaration "stating that Exemptions 1 and 3 cover all of the information originally withheld under Exemption 2." The plaintiff has not submitted any opposition to the declaration, therefore the CIA's motion to dismiss the case as moot is granted.
