Re: Freedom of Information Act Request No. 2011USMS16474
Subject: Several Mug Shots
The United States Marshals Service (USMS) is responding to your request for the mug shots of Mark Zachares, Kevin Ring, Jack B. Johnson, Leslie Johnson, Richard Delabrer, Chong Chin Kim, Amrik Singh Melhi, Ravinder Kaur Melhi, Amir Milijkovich, Chun Chen, and Jose Moreno.
Absent a written release from the subject(s) of your request is denied pursuant to Exemptions (b)(6) and (b)(7)(C) of the Freedom of Information Act, 5 U.S.C. Section 552(b). Exemption 6 allows an agency to withhold personnel, medical and similar files, the disclosure of which would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy. Exemption 7(C) allows an agency to withhold records or information compiled for law enforcement purposes to the extent that their production could reasonably be expected to constitute an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy. A discretionary release of such records or information, if they exist, would be in violation of the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. § 552a. See also United States Department of Justice v. Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, 489 U.S. 749 (1989).
If you are dissatisfied with my action on this request, you may appeal by writing to the Director, Office of Information Policy, United States Department of Justice, Suite 11050, 1425 New York Avenue, NW, Washington, D.C. 20530-0001. Your appeal must be received within 60 days of the date of this letter. Both the letter and the envelope should be clearly marked “Freedom of Information/ Privacy Act Appeal.” In the event you are dissatisfied with the results of any such appeal, judicial review will thereafter be available to you in the United States District Court for the judicial district in which you reside or have your principal place of business, or in the District of Columbia.
