Allan BlutsteinComment

Guidry v. Comey (11th Cir.) -- affirming district court's decision that FBI was not required to perform a "manual keyboard search" because it would have resulted in creation of new records rather than retrieval of existing records.

Canning v. DOJ (D.D.C.) -- ruling that: (1) FBI performed an adequate search for requested records concerning third parties; and (2) agency properly withheld records pursuant to Exemption 1, 3, 6, 7(C), 7(D), and 7(E), except with respect to certain information that FBI previously released to public.
