The agency disclosed 333 pages, which Jobe contended were non-responsive. The agency withheld 2,349 pages under Exemption 5 (privileges), although it later agreed to review the documents for potential disclosure. The agency also told Jobe that 1,553 pages had not been processed because they originated with other agencies. Jobe filed a complaint with the Office of Government Information Services, but had not heard back from either the agency or OGIS by the time he filed suit.
