Re: Request for claim files of sixteen of plaintiff's clients

Disposition: Granting defendant's motion for summary judgment

  • Litigation Considerations, Mootness and Other Grounds for Dismissal:  The court holds that "[t]he plaintiff has not requested leave to file a surreply or otherwise challenged the government's representations that all 16 of the claims files have now been produced."  "As a result, summary judgment should be entered in favor of the government, as there is no genuine dispute of material fact, and the government is entitled to judgment as a matter of law."
