Judge ORDERS Shelton Snow Search Computer for FOIA Records and SWEAR Under Oath – Rojas v. FAA 3

A ruling has come down for part of Rojas v. FAA 3. This is the one where emails for Shelton Snow suddenly disappeared and then magically reappeared.

The U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona has ORDERED Shelton Snow search his computer for chats and provide a sworn declaration stating whether or not the search revealed any records.

Although Snow was contacted and asked to search for any saved chat history on his computer, Snow’s verbal response to FAA employee Melanie Yohe is insufficient.

In response, Rojas stated that it would be satisfactory if Snow submits a declaration to the Court that he searched his computer(s) and could not obtain any chat records for the time periods in question. (Doc. 33 at 6.) The Court will require Snow to search his computer and submit a declaration that he has searched his computer and can confirm whether or not there is any saved chat history for the time periods at issue.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED requiring FAA employee Shelton Snow to search his computer and submit a declaration by Friday, June 30, 2017, that he has searched his computer and can confirm whether or not there is any saved chat history for the time periods of December 1, 2013 to March 30, 2014, and for January 1, 2015 to June 24, 2015.

The judge denied the rest of our motion for discovery, but did not rule on the FAAs Motion for Summary Judgment nor Plaintiff’s cross-motion. FAA filed its Motion for Summary Judgment in February of 2016.

The public looks forward to your declaration, Shelton.

  1. So he will just declare that he searched, and that he found nothing. Has he ever been asked in any deposition or statement anywhere if he provided answers to the BQ? Or has anyone actually declared under oath they were given the answers? I think people would still lie anyway. This search may be no different.
