Law Students Score Immigration Victory, Granados-Oseguera v. Gonzales, 03-73030 (9th Cir., Sept. 25, 2006). Judge Betty Fletcher wrote the opinion and was joined by Judge A. Wallace Tashima. Judge Connie Callahn dissented. Congratulations to University of Arizona May ‘06 grads Marybeth Canty, Laura Boyle, and Josh Chetwynd, who convinced two out of three judges on a Ninth Circuit panel to reopen their client’s immigration proceedings due to ineffective assistance of counsel. No small feat, particularly since the client did not exhaust his ineffective assistance of counsel claim before the Board of Immigration Appeals. The students were supervised by Dr. Willie Jordan-Curtis as part of the Ninth Circuit Appellate Advocacy Project.
