Bloomgarden v. DOJ, No. 16-5263 (D.C. Cir. 2017)Annotate this Case
The DC Circuit affirmed the district court's grant of summary judgment for the government in an action seeking information regarding an Assistant United States Attorney. The government withheld a termination letter that it had sent to the Assistant, but turned over most of the approximately 3,600 pages of exhibits supporting the proposed termination letter. The court held that privacy interests sufficiently outweighed the limited public interest in the letter to make its disclosure clearly unwarranted. The court also rejected plaintiff's request for modification of the judgment.
