Gahagan v. U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Servs. (5th Cir.) -- vacating district court's judgment and remanding case for further proceedings because the agency performed a new search two weeks before oral arguments that yielded additional responsive records.  

Lopez v. United States (11th Cir.) -- vacating dismissal of plaintiff's FOIA claims against Federal Bureau of Prisons and remanding for further proceedings because the district court failed to treat one claim on a motion for summary judgment and deprived plaintiff of an opportunity to present views on two other claims.
