Wellman v. ATF, No. 14-000348, 2018 WL 4643135 (D. Nev. Sept. 27, 2018) (Du, J.)
Re: Request for internal affairs investigation regarding plaintiff
Disposition: Granting in part and denying in part defendant's motion for summary judgment; granting in part and denying in part plaintiff's motion for summary judgment
- Procedural Requirements: The court holds that "to the extent that the Government released certain pages to Plaintiff, but redacted portions of those pages and cited 'non-responsive' as the reason for redaction, that was improper." "Because the Court finds that the structure and text of FOIA itself – as interpreted by the D.C. Circuit in Immigration Lawyers – renders the practice of partial redaction while citing the reason 'non-responsive' improper, the Court finds that the Government must reexamine all documents released to Plaintiff to comply with this order."
