Correcting address.

From: JPat Brown

I am appealing what is on its face not a good faith application of the foreseeable harm standard. Further, the fact that the agency chose not to release any factual statements from emails, despite factual information not falling under deliberative privilege unless it's inextricably intertwined with the deliberative process, casts doubt on their assertion that "no meaningful non-exempt material can practicably be segregated from the exempt material."
