Cause of Action Inst. v. IRS (D.D.C.) -- concluding that agency performed reasonable search for communications with White House regarding third-party document requests; notably approving IRS's decision not to search email accounts of Office of Disclosure employees because its highest ranking official attested that he was unaware of any relevant IRS-White House consultations.

[Note:  I was counsel on this case for Cause of Action Inst. during its earlier stages]
