Disposition: Granting defendant's motion to dismiss
  • Exhaustion of Administrative Remedies:  "[P]laintiff's claim under FOIA is so insubstantial that it does not involve a federal controversy because it alleges nothing more than that plaintiff requested information from the IRS and the IRS, in fact, responded; no allegations explain the nature of plaintiff's grievances related to FOIA."
