Precedent Setting Case in the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals
Yesterday was quite an exciting day in our office. We received notice that our firm won a very difficult case in the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals. An Immigration Judge (IJ) and the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) had denied our clients' asylum case. Scott Bratton, partner at Margaret W. Wong & Associates, argued the case two years ago before the Sixth Circuit, arguing that country conditions had changed in Zimbabwe and our clients were more likely than not to be persecuted if they were to return to their home country. The Sixth Circuit agreed with Mr. Bratton and overturned IJ and BIA decision and remanded the case to the BIA. This is a precedent setting case, which you can read about here.
