requests for patron info under FOIA?

Law student requests patron information at over 85 Michigan libraries under FOIA. Libraries say no, and are supported by Michigan’s privacy laws. Law student/clerk may sue. Interestingly, the head of the firm the law student is clerking at is the Chairman of the Michigan Federation of Young Republicans. And I’m not sure if the law student, Caleb Marker, is the same Michigan Caleb Marker as this one, or maybe this one, but I bet he’s this one.
