Re: Request for Currency Transaction Report ("CTR")

Disposition: Granting defendant's motion for summary judgment

  • Litigation Considerations, Adequacy of Search:  "The court finds that defendants have conducted an adequate search and submitted 'reasonably detailed, nonconclusory affidavits' establishing that the requested record does not exist."  "The declarations here describe the office responsible for conducting the search, the database that was searched, and the search terms that were used."  "Given the nature of the document, a CTR where the reasonable search terms would only be the plaintiff's information, the court finds that the government need not do more."
