SIJ Victories in Nebraska

Charles "Shane" Ellison writes: "I wanted to pass along two Nebraska Supreme Court victories our office received today related to SIJ:

In re Carlos D.

In re Luis J.

In one, we authored an amicus brief; and in the other, the Immigrant Legal Center’s Roxana Cortez was lead counsel.  The Supreme Court cases built off an earlier legislative victory (LB 670) from this year. I have also attached a practice advisory I wrote with Professor Ruser related to LB 670, a bill we coauthored along with a number of other ILC attorneys."
