Orantes-Hernandez v. Holder



Orantes-Hernandez v. Holder (formerly Orantes-Hernandez v. Gonzales)

Challenging abuses in the immigration detention and removal system.

THE 9th CIRCUIT COURT OF APPEALS AFFIRMED the district court's decision in this case, and on July 6, 2009, the U.S. Dept. of Justice filed a notice that it would not be filing a petition for rehearing. The appellate court's decision (4/6/09, PDF) is therefore final.
