1. You insist I specify the offices. If you read the request, I did so.
2. You insist I specify a date range. If you read the request, I did so.
3. Case law establishes that the request is not unduly burdensome. See Shapiro v. CIA, No. 14-00019, 2016 WL 1069646 (D.D.C. Mar. 17, 2016) (Cooper, J.) which specifically addresses the issue of keyword searches. Note that it also addresses the failure of agencies to specify how or why it is unduly burdensome, as you have, and that this alone is grounds for rejection of the claim. If you insist, I can provide case law specifically addresses the issue of email searches. Be advised that the eDiscovery capabilities of your systems are documented.
