Rosiere v. United States (10th Cir.) -- affirming district court's dismissal of plaintiff's FOIA lawsuit in Colorado because plaintiff filed lawsuits in Nevada and New Jersey seeking identical documents.  The Tenth Circuit rejected plaintiff's argument that section 552(7)(A) permits a requester to sue for identical FOIA requests in two separate courts so long as each FOIA request is made on a separate date and assigned an individualized tracking number.
