Case DescriptionThomas Stylianos, an attorney, submitted a FOIA request on behalf of Daniel Dem to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services for records concerning Dem's visa application and the marriage certificate for his marriage to his former wife. Both documents had been provided to the agency by Dem. The agency acknowledged receipt of the request. The agency told Stylianos that it was unable to find any records. Stylianos filed an administrative appeal. The agency then told Stylianos that it had located the records but that they were exempt because they identified Dem's former wife. Stylianos then filed suit.
