AILA Submits Amicus Brief Arguing That a NY Conviction for Cocaine Is Not a Controlled Substance Offense

3/11/21 AILA Doc. No. 21031730. Crimes, Removal & Relief

AILA submitted an amicus brief to the Second Circuit in Paiz v. Garland arguing that a New York conviction for cocaine is not an offense relating to a federally controlled substance because the definition of cocaine in New York is overbroad and indivisible and no additional showing of realistic probability is required where the statutory mismatch is clear.
