UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA
September 12, 2012
ALVIN DORSEY, PLAINTIFF,
DRUG ENFORCEMENT ADMINISTRATION, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Emmet G. Sullivan United States District Judge
MEMORANDUM OPINION AND ORDER
Plaintiff brought this action under the Freedom of Information Act, see 5 U.S.C. § 552, and the Privacy Act, see 5 U.S.C. § 552a, against the Drug Enforcement Administration ("DEA"). Since plaintiff filed his complaint, two events have changed the course of this case substantially. First, plaintiff has reformulated his FOIA request to such an extent that it barely resembles the request initially submitted to the DEA. Second, plaintiff has made a payment of $475.00 toward search fees estimated for the processing of potentially responsive records. In light of these developments, and on consideration of Defendant's Notice of Withdrawal of Argument [Dkt. #28], it is hereby
ORDERED that Defendant's Motion to Dismiss, or in the Alternative, for Summary Judgment [Dkt. #13] is DENIED WITHOUT PREJUDICE; it is
FURTHER ORDERED that, within 45 days of this Order, defendant shall file either a renewed summary judgment motion, or a proposed schedule for further proceedings.
