Re: Request for e-mails concerning plaintiff

Disposition: Granting defendant's motion for summary judgment

  • Litigation Considerations, Vaughn Index / Declaration:  The court rejects plaintiff's argument that "the Vaughn Index is inadequate" and instead holds that "the Vaughn Index, and especially the portions of the Index describing the disputed documents, is sufficiently detailed."  The court explains that "for each redacted e-mail, the Index lists the page number of the e-mail, the date of the e-mail, the subject line of the e-mail, the applicable exemption, and a brief statement that explains how the cited exemption applies to the e-mail."
