Federal Lawsuit Against Atlanta IJ Cassidy Moves Forward

"At the instigation of [Immigration Judge] William Cassidy, a former deportation agency prosecutor, on April 19, 2010 various federal officials and Paragon Systems, Inc. guards interfered with my Constitutional rights to observe deportation hearings for the detained docket in Atlanta, Georgia.  Last week, Atlanta-based Eleventh Circuit District Court Judge Orinda Evans filed an order denying the federal government's motions to dismiss my pro se lawsuit based on those events and related ones." - Investigative blogger / Professor Jacqueline Stevens, Jan. 22, 2013.
