Re: Request for records concerning plaintiff

Disposition: Granting defendant's motions to dismiss

  • Litigation Considerations, Mootness and Other Grounds for Dismissal:  The court holds that "[p]laintiff . . . has brought a successive federal lawsuit, mostly against the same Defendants, on the same claims and causes of action which were previously finally dismissed with prejudice in her earlier federal action."  "Plaintiff’s claims against all but three of the named Defendants herein are therefore barred by res judicata."  The court relates that "[i]n her 2014 California federal suit, Plaintiff asserted claims and causes of action" including "Freedom of Information Act violations."
