Rachuy v. FBI, No. 13-1508, 2015 WL 495573 (D.D.C. Feb. 5, 2015) (Contreras, J.)

Re: Request for records concerning plaintiff

Disposition: Granting defendant's motion for summary judgment; denying plaintiff's motion for summary judgment

  • Litigation Considerations, Exhaustion of Administrative Remedies:  The court holds that "because defendant demonstrates plaintiff's failure to exhaust his administrative remedies through compliance with the agency's fee regulations, summary judgment is appropriate."  The court finds that "[p]laintiff's dissatisfaction with the delay in receipt of documents and the quality of those documents does not relieve him of his obligation to pay fees, and he remains obligated to pay fees even after having filed a lawsuit."  The court finds that "plaintiff does not demonstrate that he actually paid any part of the requested fees."
