Plaintiff Bradley L. Lowe has been granted discovery in his Privacy Act lawsuit against the Navy. Lowe claims that a release to the Marine Corps Times violated his Privacy Act rights. The Navy moved for summary judgment on the lawsuit claiming that the disclosure was allowed pursuant to the FOIA. However, Lowe moved for discovery pursuant to Federal Civil Rule of Procedure 56(f) seeking to find out if the disclosure was actually permissible under the FOIA. District Court Judge for Ellen Segal Huvelle agreed that discovery was permissible; she denied the Navy's motion for summary judgment without predjudice while the discovery takes place.
