  4. NYS 1:2021cv00954No More Deaths et al v. United States Customs and Border Protection

  5. NYS 1:2021cv02166Bonner v. Federal Bureau Of Investigation et al

    • July 10, 2023: ORDER. The Court accordingly orders that-by one month from today, that is, August 10, 2023-the CIA fully complete its FOIA review and identify for the Court and plaintiff Bonner in writing, and with specificity, all aspects of the as-yet unreview ed material for which it asserts an exemption, so as to enable prompt briefing on any such claims. The Court further orders that by Friday, July 14, 2023, the parties propose an expedited schedule for supplemental briefing of summary judgment moti ons directed to the newly claimed exemptions. The Court has two additional-more prosaic-orders in response to the parties' July 7 joint letter. The Court's fourth request in its July 5 order was not heeded in the joint letter. The Court had ordered the parties to supply the documents at issue with the exemption(s) applicable to each redaction identified. However, the documents at Docket 65, Exhibits A, B, and C, have unintelligible exemption numbers in the margins. These do not clearly correspond to any one redaction or any grouping of redactions on a particular page. By July 14, 2023, the parties are to refile the documents in such a fashion that, for each redaction on each page, the corresponding presently asserted exemption ( s) are clearly identified. Thus, if a page contains five redactions, there should be five margin notes identifying the corresponding claimed exemption(s). The parties may, of course, address together redactions on a page that are covered by the sa me exemption by clearly indicating such. This filing will assist the Court in its work, which will continue, towards resolving the presently claimed exemptions. Relatedly, the Court orders the parties, also by July 14, 2023, to file an index that sorts the currently claimed redactions by exemption(s). The index should state the number of redactions asserted under only Exemption 1; under only Exemption 3; under both Exemption 1 and 3; and so forth; and indicate where these redactions appea r in the documents at issue (e.g., "In the group of redactions under both Exemptions 1 and 3, one redaction is found on page 1 of Exhibit A, five redactions are found on page 2 of Exhibit B…. "). SO ORDERED. (Signed by Judge Paul A. Engelmayer on 7/10/23) (yv)
  6. WAW 2:2021cv01166Stepien v. Spinrad et al

    • July 10, 2023: ORDER re Briefing Schedule. Deadline for Plaintiff to file her motion for summary judgment is 8/18/2023, Deadline for Defendants to file their joint opposition to Plaintiff's motion and Defendants' cross-motion for summary judgment 9/15/2023, Deadline for Plaintiff to file her reply and opposition to Defendant's cross-motion is 9/29/2023, Deadline for Defendants' reply is 10/13/2023. Signed by Hon. S. Kate Vaughan. (SB)
