Gahagan v. U.S. Customs & Border Prot. (E.D. La.) -- rejecting agency's argument that an "I-826" form that was released to plaintiff with unmarked redactions was not responsive to plaintiff's request, and ordering agency to submit a revised Vaughn index to account for the withholdings; further finding that the agency's declaration was admissible because the declarant had requisite personal knowledge about the processing of the request.
