Re: Seeking information in context of plaintiff's claims against a former employer under various statutes Disposition: Granting defendant's motion to dismiss
  • Proper Party Defendant: The court notes that "to the extent that [plaintiff] seeks to obtain information under the Freedom of Information Act, which requires executive branch agencies to make 'agency records' available to individuals seeking disclosure, his request should be addressed to the agency that has custody of the information he seeks."  "The courts of the United States are expressly exempted from FOIA's definition of an 'agency.'"
