Supreme Court held that jurisdiction for a reverse-FOIA action cannot be based on the FOIA itself because "Congress did not design the FOIA exemptions to be mandatory bars to disclosure." (67) Consequently, the Court held that the FOIA "does not afford" a submitter "any right to enjoin agency disclosure." (68) Moreover, the Court held that jurisdiction cannot be based on the Trade Secrets Act (69) because it is a criminal statute that does not afford a "private right of action." (70) Instead, the Supreme Court found that federal district courts had jurisdiction to review an agency's decision to disclose requested records under the Administrative Procedure Act (APA).
