Harvey v. Lynch (D.D.C.) -- denying plaintiff an award of costs after determining that his lawsuit was not the catalyst for the release of records by the Federal Bureau of Prisons; rather, the court found that BOP initiated its search shortly after receiving the request and that its delayed response was due to limited resources and the agency's first-in/first out policy for processing requests.
