Q. I would like to petition for a jury trial in my federal FOIA case. How can I do that?
A. Litigants in FOIA cases do not have the right to a jury trial. See, e.g., Buckles v. Indian Health Serv./Belcourt Serv. Unit, 268. F. Supp. 2d 1101, 1102-1103 (D.N.D. 2003). Nor am I aware of any FOIA case in which a court has granted a motion or demand for a jury trial.
