McBurney v. Young, 11-1099

In a case brought by non-Virginia residents seeking declaratory and injunctive relief under 42 USC section 1983 against Virginia officials because of their failure to provide the plaintiffs with requested public records on the basis that the plaintiffs were not Virginia residents, grant of summary judgment to the defendants is affirmed, where: 1) the plaintiffs' claim that the Virginia Freedom of Information Act violates the Privileges and Immunities Clause of the federal constitution could not succeed as a matter of law; 2) the district court did not err in rejecting a dormant Commerce Clause claim.
