BOP Agrees To Provide Prisoner with BOPDOCS Disc

On August 24, 2007, the Bureau of Prisons (BOP) settled a portion of a lawsuit brought under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) by a federal prisoner for a copy of its BOPDOCS disc.

Brandon Sample, a federal prisoner and PLN contributing writer, sued the BOP for a copy of its BOPDOCS disc after BOP refused to provide the disc in response to a FOIA request by Sample. The BOPDOCS disc contains all BOP Program Statements, Technical Reference Manuals, Operations Memoranda, forms, and other assorted documents.

In return for dismissing the count concerning the BOPDOCS disc, BOP agreed to provide Sample with a "redacted copy of the BOPDOCs CD Rom, without imposition of processing fees." See: Sample v. Federal Bureau of Prisons, USDC, D. Colo., No. 06-¬715 (2007).
