Judicial Review of In Absentia Motions to Reopen Cases

On November 10, 2009, the United States Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in Kucana v. Holder (08-911),  a very important case involving an immigrant’s right to seek judicial review of a motion to reopen in absentia deportation cases.

Cornell University School of Law Legal Information Institute has a very good summary of the legal issues in this case as well as the facts of the case.

We will certainly track this case and issue any updates right here on our blog.
