Suppose that subsystem $A = A_1\otimes A_2$ and that $U: A\otimes B \to A\otimes B$ behaves as the identity on $A_1$. In other words, suppose $U = I\otimes V$ where $I$ acts on $A_1$ and $V$ acts on $A_2\otimes B$. Show that for any state $\ket{\phi}$ of system $B$, the superoperator $S_U^\phi$ can be written as $I\otimes S$ for some superoperator $S$ on subsystem $A_2$ alone.
