Re: Request for records concerning purported DEA informant who testified against plaintiff during plaintiff's criminal trial. Disposition: Denying plaintiff's motion for reconsideration of court's prior grant of defendant's motion for summary judgment
  • Litigation Considerations, Adequacy of Search:  The court finds plaintiff's arguments to "simply be reformulations of the search sufficiency arguments" plaintiff previously raised.  "Accordingly, the Court refuses to consider the Plaintiff's argument[s]."  The court explained that "with this Motion for Reconsideration, the Plaintiff is effectively attempting to file a surreply after the Court has already issued its decision."  "The fact that the Plaintiff could have made these arguments before but did not is in itself a sufficient basis for the Court to reject these arguments."
