Major CA1 Victory: Pineda-Maldonado v. Garland

January 25, 2024 (1 min read)

Pineda-Maldonado v. Garland

"Ricardo Jose Pineda-Maldonado ("Pineda-Maldonado") is a native and citizen of El Salvador. He petitions for review of the decision by the Board of Immigration Appeals ("BIA") that denied his application for asylum and claims for withholding of removal and protection under the Convention Against Torture ("CAT"). We grant the petition, vacate the BIA's decision, and remand for further proceedings consistent with this decision."

[Please read the entire 31-page decision.  It is a solid beat-down for the IJ and the BIA.  Hats way off to Kim Williams and team!  Listen to the oral argument here.]
