  • Procedural Requirements, Entities Subject to the FOIA:  The court finds that, "[t]he Freedom of Information Act requires federal agencies to make certain information available to the public, and the Privacy Act imposes rules on disclosure by federal agencies."  "There is no federal agency named as a Defendant in this case."  "Therefore, no cause of action could possibly exist against these Defendants."
