To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

The e-mail messages to and from Mary Cheng regarding the matter of In reReynaldo CASTRO-TUM. It is our understanding that after the Attorney General reversed the administrative closure decision and remanded this matter (https://www.justice.gov/eoir/page/file/1064086/download), the original Immigration Judge, Steven Morley, set a briefing schedule for the parties to address the issues. However, the agency then, without explanation or advance notice, assigned a new Immigration Judge, ACIJ Deepali Nadkarni. A prior FOIA request revealed that that change involved Deputy Chief Immigration Judge Mary Cheng. Accordingly, I'm asking for the following documents:

1. All e-mail messages between January 20, 2017 and the present date using the following keywords: "Castro-Tum" or "Castro Tum"

The search should include the following custodians:
a. DCIJ Mary Cheng
b. IJ Steven Morley

2. I also request records describing the processing for FOIA Request Number 2018-35110, including records sufficient to identify search terms used and locations and custodians searched and any tracking sheets used to track the processing of this request. If you use FOIA questionnaires or certifications completed by individual custodians or components to determine whether they possess responsive materials or to describe how they conducted searches, I also request any such records prepared in connection with the processing of this request.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
