United States Court of Appeals, District of Columbia Circuit.

Darin Jones, Appellant v. United States Department of Justice and Federal Bureau of Investigation, Appellees.

No. 15-5246

Decided: June 24, 2016

BEFORE:  Griffith, Srinivasan, and Millett, Circuit Judges Darin Jones, Bethesda, MD, Pro Se. Wyneva Johnson, Jane M. Lyons, Assistant U.S. Attorneys, R. Craig Lawrence, U.S. Attorney's Office (USA), Civil Division, Washington, DC, for Defendants–Appellees.

ORDER

Upon consideration of the motion for summary reversal, the opposition thereto, and the reply;  the motion for summary affirmance, the opposition thereto, and the reply;  appellant's motion to strike the reply in support of the motion for summary affirmance, which contains a request for reconsideration of the denial of appellant's motion for sanctions;  the motion for leave to file a surreply and the lodged surreply;  and the government's combined opposition to the motions to strike and for leave to file a surreply, it is

ORDERED that the motion to strike, the request for reconsideration, and the motion for leave to file a surreply be denied. It is

FURTHER ORDERED that the motions for summary affirmance and summary reversal be denied. The merits of the parties' positions are not so clear as to warrant summary action. See Taxpayers Watchdog, Inc. v. Stanley, 819 F.2d 294, 297 (D.C. Cir. 1987) (per curiam).

Because the court has determined that summary disposition is not in order, the Clerk is instructed to calendar this case for presentation to a merits panel.
