Prisology v. BOP, No. 14-0969, 2014 WL 6435007 (D.D.C. Nov. 17, 2014) (Jackson, J.)

Re: Plaintiff's contention that defendant "'refuses to make available numerous qualifying records via computer telecommunications means'"

Disposition: Granting defendant's motion to dismiss

  • Litigation Considerations:  "Because plaintiff has failed to assert an actual or imminent particularized injury, it lacks standing to bring this case, and the Court must dismiss plaintiff's FOIA claim."  The court relates that "[p]laintiff alleges only that it is a nonprofit organization that advocates for criminal justice reform, and that defendant has failed to satisfy its duties under [(a)(2) of the] FOIA to make certain records publicly available."  However, the court finds that "plaintiff has failed to point to any injuries sustained, by the organization itself or by its members, as a result of defendant's conduct."
