Re: Request for a number of records including oaths of office Disposition: Denying plaintiff's FOIA claims without prejudice
  • Procedural Requirements, Entities Subject to the FOIA:  The court notes that while "[n]one of [the] documents included any explicit request under the FOIA, and the court did not construe them as such, 'to the extent that any FOIA request was made to the court—it is denied because the United States District Courts are specifically excluded from the provisions of the Act.'"
  • Litigation Considerations:  The court finds that "[d]efendant's criminal case is not the appropriate avenue for defendant to seek relief for any alleged FOIA violation."
