Re:  Request for plaintiff's background investigation and personnel file

Disposition:  Denying plaintiff's motion to compel discovery

  • Litigation Considerations, Discovery:  The court holds that "[plaintiff] makes no showing that this is an appropriate case for early disclosure."  The court notes that "because FOIA cases pertain to the propriety of revealing requested documents, discovery in those cases is rare and limited."
