  • Procedural Requirements, Proper FOIA Requests:  The court finds that "[t]hough Plaintiff also referenced the [FOIA], he has not established that he made a proper FOIA request."  The court explains that "[p]laintiff's request for a progress report, a document Defendant [] would presumably have had to create for him, together with a list of representatives or agencies that might assist him, which is readily available public information, is not such a request."
