Reporter's Official Transcript of Summary Adjudication/Summary Judgment Motions

1 importantly is that's not my role. My role is to make a

2 decision. Having made the decision, I then, in my view,

3 lack the jurisdiction.

4 So as I seek to articulate the position, even

5 if I didn't lack the jurisdiction, I think that there

6 has to be finality. I believe I've engaged in the

7 analysis that is absolutely the proper analysis.

8 I suppose, if you had a different fact

9 scenario -- not "I suppose." I know that if you had a

10 different fact scenario, where you had people who were

11 disinclined to seek the truth, and then that could be

12 demonstrated -- which has not been demonstrated in any

13 way to my satisfaction, not even close. But if you were

14 able to demonstrate a lack or a disinclination to seek

15 the truth, then you're talking a different situation.

16 But quite the contrary, there were just literally scores

17 of people out there trying to prove your points; namely,

18 something was amiss here, something was rotten, and none

19 of them did.

20 Now that isn't dispositive, but it does weigh

21 into the balancing aspect of things, and as a

22 consequence, I'm going to finalize my ruling granting

23 summary judgment for the government as regards the FOIA

24 issue, and telling them that they have to give you the

25 color pictures.
