837 F. Supp. 22 (1993)
Defendant Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation was appointed receiver and liquidating agent for a bank. Defendant issued an order of investigation, and issued administrative subpoenas duces tecum to plaintiffs, former officers and directors of the bank. The subpoenas were identical and sought extensive personal financial information in relation to plaintiffs and their families. Plaintiffs filed an action against defendant, seeking a determination of the subpoenas' validity. One plaintiff filed a separate declaratory judgment action and a motion for summary judgment.
- The court denied defendant's motion for summary enforcement of the administrative subpoena and motion to dismiss, holding that defendant could not freely peruse personal financial records in order to determine a party's financial ability to satisfy a judgment, and defendant had failed to make even a suggestion of wrongdoing.
- Further, the court granted plaintiff's motion for summary judgment in favor of all plaintiffs.
Defendant FDIC's motion for summary enforcement of administrative subpoena and motions to dismiss were denied, and plaintiff's motion for summary judgment was granted in favor of all plaintiffs, where defendant could not freely peruse personal financial records and defendant failed to make even a suggestion of wrongdoing.
