4. Since the Court's February 14, 2014 order, the parties have made significant progress toward resolving disputed issues, as described in the following paragraphs, see infra ¶¶ 5-12.
5. Defendant United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement ("ICE") has agreed to perform the following additional searches for documents responsive to Plaintiff's FOIA Request, as amended by Plaintiff's February 22, 2013 communication, a true and correct copy of which appears in the Complaint as Exhibit H:
• The San Diego, Los Angeles, and San Francisco divisions of the ICE Office of Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) (including Field Office Directors (FODs), Assistant Field Office Directors (AFODs), Supervisory Immigration Enforcement Agents and Immigration Enforcement Agents) will search their computer hard drives and Microsoft Outlook files using the following terms: Detainer Policy; Detainer Procedure; Secure Communities Policy; S.C. Policy. Within these same ERO divisions, the FODs and AFODs only will additionally search their computer hard drives and Microsoft Outlook files using the following additional terms: TRUST Act; Bill 1081; AB 1081; Bill 4; AB 4.
• The Secure Communities Enforcement Division in ERO headquarters will search their computer hard drives and Microsoft Outlook files using the following search terms: TRUST Act; Bill 1081; AB 1081; Bill 4; AB 4; Detainer Policy; Detainer Procedure; Secure Communities Policy; S.C. Policy.
• The ICE Office of Director (OD) will conduct a search of the computer hard drives and Microsoft Outlook files of the ICE Deputy Director, ICE Director, and ICE Deputy Director's Deputy Chief of Staff using the following search terms: Detainer Policy.
• The Office of State, Local and Tribal Coordination (OSLTC) will search their computer hard drives and Microsoft Outlook files, as well as shared drives, if any, likely to contain responsive documents using the following search terms: TRUST Act; Bill 1081; AB 1081; Bill 4; AB 4; Detainer Policy; Detainer Procedure; Secure Communities Policy; S.C. Policy.
6. ICE further agrees to provide the OD with copies of media articles provided by Plaintiff on February 7, 2014, which may assist the OD's searches.
7. ICE anticipates completing the searches described above, see supra ¶ 5, by May 30, 2014, and agrees to begin a rolling production of responsive documents produced by these searches by May 30, 2014.
8. ICE agrees not to seek any fees for productions made pursuant to this Stipulation and Order.
9. The parties agree that the search cut-off date for the purpose of the above-described searches, see supra ¶ 5, will be April 25, 2013.
10. The parties agree to negotiate in good faith a final production date and will submit an update to the Court regarding those negotiations at the status conference proposed below, see infra ¶ 13.
11. Plaintiff agrees to forego any challenges to exemptions and withholdings claimed by ICE as of the date of this Stipulation.
12. Plaintiff agrees that, upon receipt of the final document production resulting from the searches described above, see supra ¶ 5, and an affidavit from ICE confirming that it conducted those searches, Plaintiff will agree to limit summary judgment to the exemptions/withholdings claimed in productions made pursuant to this Stipulation and Order (if any) and will forego any challenges to the adequacy of ICE's search in response to Plaintiff's FOIA Request.
13. Because the stipulations described above, see supra ¶¶ 5-12, should significantly narrow the issues remaining in this case, the parties respectfully request that the Court hold in abeyance further briefing in this case, set a status conference for this case on or around June 26, 2014, and extend the dispositive motions schedule to a date to be determined at the status conference.

IT IS SO STIPULATED.
