Seeking firm to represent NY Immigration Coalition/I-ARC as amicus in Supreme Court. We are co-counsel to a petitioner, Erika Jisela Yanez-Pena, in a follow-on suit to Pereira about the BIA’s policy that if an immigrant received an NTA without a time or place and then received a notice of hearing with the time and place, the two documents *together* constitute a complete NTA and the date of the notice of hearing triggers the stop-time rule. The 5th Circuit ruled against Yanez-Pena and we are seeking cert.
As you probably know, the circuits have split on whether the BIA policy is consistent with the statute, with some circuits finding that the statute requires all of the information to be in a single document and other circuits (including the 5th Circuit in our case) holding that the BIA is entitled to conclude that the two documents together are a valid NTA.
NYIC/I-ARC have agreed to file an amicus brief in support of cert, and we are hoping that other immigration groups will sign on as well. ’m looking for a firm to represent NYIC/I-ARC and draft the brief. It would be due in 6 or 7 weeks (30 days after we file the cert petition). Please let me know if you’re interested.
Thanks, Jennifer ([email protected])
