From: Emma North-Best

I am appealing this rejection in its entirety, as the Bureau is known to use an eDiscovery system that makes the search process trivial. However, even if it did not Shapiro v. CIA, No. 14-00019, 2016 WL 1069646 (D.D.C. Mar. 17, 2016) (Cooper, J.) establishes that the request is still valid. "Regardless of how onerous it might be to locate them, [when] there can be no dispute about which items are being requested... FOIA's reasonable-description requirement does not doom requests that precisely describe the records sought, even if compliance might overwhelm an agency’s response team."
