From: Emma North-Best

I am appealing the rejection in its entirety, as the search is trivial to perform and limited to a small number of accounts. The search process is simple, both from an individual approach and an eDiscovery approach. Any claim to the contrary is prima facie absurd and contradicted by the Department of Justice's own, officially released documents on its email systems. Consider also Shapiro v. CIA, No. 14-00019, 2016 WL 1069646 (D.D.C. Mar. 17, 2016) (Cooper, J.)
