Vaughan v. Ky. Army Nat'l Guard, No. 15-6, 2016 WL 1633048 (E.D. Ky. Apr. 21, 2016) (Van Tatenhove, J.)

Re: Plaintiff's allegations of improper use of document in disciplinary proceeding

Disposition: Granting defendant's motion to dismiss

  • Ligation Considerations, Mootness and Other Grounds for Dismissal:  The court holds that "[d]efendants' motion to dismiss on the basis of res judicata is . . . properly granted."  The court finds that "[plaintiff's previous FOIA] cases were finally decided on the merits by the Court and involved the same parties as [plaintiff's] instant lawsuit."  "Moreover, the issues raised in [plaintiff's] latest case were—or should have been—previously litigated in the prior lawsuits."
