DC Circuit

  • ACLU Complaint Challenging Obama Administration for Detaining Asylum Seekers as Intimidation Tactic(583 KB - 12/18/2014)
    Nationwide class-action lawsuit filed by the ACLU seeking injunctive and declaratory relief, challenging the Obama Administration’s policy of detaining asylum-seeking mothers and children to intimidate others from coming to the U.S. (R.I.L.R. v. Johnson, 12/16/14)
    AILA Doc. No. 14121849.
  • DC Circuit Remands L-1B Denial for Specialty Chef(690 KB - 10/22/2014)
    Noting that the lack of clarity in the definition of “specialized knowledge” does not permit the government to apply a “sliding scale of specialness,” the Court found that the AAO’s bar against considering culturally-based skills for L-1B purposes was in error. (Fogo de Chao v. DHS, 9/29/14)
    AILA Doc. No. 14102260.
  • Court Says DOL TEGLs Are Rules Subject to Notice and Comment Requirements(613 KB - 6/17/2014)
    The court found the plaintiffs entitled to summary judgment, as the 2011 Training and Employment Guidance Letters (TEGLs) providing rules for certain H-2A certifications are legislative rules and DOL violated the APA by promulgating them without notice and comment. (Mendoza v. Perez, 6/13/14)
    AILA Doc. No. 14061743.
  • AILA Lacks Standing to Challenge IIRAIRA (1/13/2000)
    D.C. Circuit holds that AILA and other organizational plaintiffs lack standing to challenge expedited removal provisions of IIRAIRA and implementing regulations. (AILA v. Reno, 1/11/2000)
    AILA Doc. No. 00011301.
  • Court Recognizes Associational Standing for EAJA Fees (11/3/1998)
    The court found that although there may be cases in which an association's eligibility for fees will depend on the eligibility of its members (i.e., when an association is litigating as a front for members), there was no evidence of that in this case. (Nat'l Assoc. of Manuf. v. DOL, 11/3/98)
    AILA Doc. No. 98110359.
