Re: Request for complete listing of all incoming and outgoing calls to and from a specified telephone number Disposition: Granting defendant's motion for summary judgment
  • Adequacy of Search: The court finds that DEA conducted a reasonable and adequate search.  Although plaintiff argued that DEA's search was inadequate because it failed to produce two documents that he already had in his possession, the court finds that DEA's declaration set "forth in reasonable detail the scope of the search and the search terms and methods the DEA employed" and that "the agency's search was reasonably calculated to discover documents responsive to the plaintiff's FOIA request."
