M.K. v. Tenet case brief
2002, United States District Court, 2002
Facts: Filed by six former employees of CIA, its director and others that defendants violated Privacy Act of 1974 by alleging that defendants obstructed plaintiff’s access to counsel. Plaintiff proposed second amendment complaint where plaintiff wanted to add another nine plaintiff’s and provided more info to cure deficiencies. Defendants want to sever claims of initial 6 plaintiff’s under Rule 21.
Reasoning: Just thought that under new Rule of Civil Procedure 18, joinder of the new claims is okay. Rule 18 removes all obstacles to joinder of claims and permits joinder of legal and equitable actions with the only restriction by jurisdiction.
