Freedom Watch v. U.S. Dep't of State (D.D.C.) -- on remand from the D.C. Circuit, ruling that the State Department conducted an adequate search of Hillary Clinton's emails for documents relating to a type of sanctions waiver the U.S. State Department granted to certain countries doing business with Iran.  The court pointed out that plaintiff's arguments in opposition to the agency's search had been raised and rejected in earlier briefing, prompting the court to criticize plaintiff for ignoring its prior opinion and for submitting "sloppy work."
