6, changing the date of a letter referred to in the September 1 correspondence.
Defendant has filed a motion to dismiss, arguing that defendant has completely and satisfactorily responded to plaintiff's FOIA requests and because there is no basis to maintain and continue the lawsuit, it should be dismissed.
Certainly, once all the records, files and documents that have been requested have been produced, the substance of the action becomes moot. Crooker v. U.S. Dept. of State, 202 U.S. App. D.C. 9, 628 F.2d 9, 10 (D.C. Cir. 1980); accord Ackerly v. Ley, 137 U.S. App. D.C. 133, 420 F.2d 1336, 1340 (D.C. Cir. 1969).
Plaintiff has received all of his requested documents and for that reason, the case must be dismissed.
An appropriate order is attached.
Upon consideration of defendant's motion to dismiss, the entire record herein, and the Court's finding that defendant had responded to plaintiff's request for records prior to the initiation of this action so that the substance of this action no longer exists, it is by the Court this 31st day of October 1983,
ORDERED that defendant's motion to dismiss is granted, and it is further
ORDERED that this action is dismissed with prejudice.
