Re: Request for records concerning plaintiff's criminal conviction

Disposition: Dismissing plaintiff's case

  • Litigation Considerations:  The court finds that "[f]rom all indications, petitioner has not utilized the FOIA to obtain the documents he seeks."  "Requests for agency records are the province of the Freedom of Information Act . . . and 'the exclusive nature of the FOIA precludes mandamus relief[.]'"
