Pinson v. DOJ (D.D.C.) -- (1) dismissing case against the DEA as moot because plaintiff abandoned his claim; (2) dismissing case against the Criminal Division as moot because the agency released in full the document at issue; and (3) with respect to Bureau of Prisons and DOJ, denying plaintiff's motions for sanctions, a protective order, an order to show cause, and a preliminary injunction; granting plaintiff's unopposed motion for appointment of counsel because plaintiff, an inmate at maximum-security prison, was prohibited from receiving certain FOIA-released documents in mail due to BOP security policies.
