Neary v. FDIC (D.D.C.) -- dismissing plaintiff's case seeking the names, addresses  and interview dates of certain rejected job applicants.  The court found that the FDIC properly withheld responsive records pursuant to Exemption 6, because plaintiff's unsubstantiated allegations of age discrimination did not outweigh the privacy interests of the rejected applicants.  Although certain requested information was publicly accessible for a brief time period, the court held that the information remained practically obscure and the FDIC had not waived its right to protect it.
