may be slight, it should be protected under the exemption.
The claim for exemption under (b)(6) is denied. Very generalized, limited past employment factual data for certain officials of Paradyne is sought to be withheld under this exemption. No satisfactory showing justifying withholding is presented considering the release of far more sensitive private information which has occurred.
It is difficult for the Court to find any justification for the elaborate lawyering which this simple case has engendered, considering particularly the agency's release of substantial data without contest. The very limited information ordered released is inconsequential, plaintiff's interest is a purely commercial matter, and no fees or costs are awarded.
An appropriate Order is filed herewith.
For reasons set forth in an accompanying Memorandum filed herewith, it is
ORDERED that summary judgment is granted defendant on its claim that documents claimed to be covered by 5 U.S.C. § 552(b)(4) need not be released; and it is further
ORDERED that summary judgment is granted plaintiff on defendant's exemption claims under 5 U.S.C. § 552(b)(5) and (b)(6); and it is further
ORDERED that no attorney fees shall be awarded plaintiff and each party shall bear its costs.
