Re: Requests for certain records concerning requester's incarceration

Disposition: Affirming district court's dismissal of requester's case

  • Litigation Considerations, Mootness and Other Grounds for Dismissal: The Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit holds that "[t]he district court did not abuse its discretion in finding that [the requester's] litigation activity was malicious." "[The requester's] brief before this court – like his response to the district court's order to show cause – fails to provide any justification for his assault on the courts and the DOJ." "The claim was properly dismissed[]" because "[the requester] still fails to provide a justification for multiple, repetitious suits."
