Professor-Blogger Sues DOJ Over Public Access to Immigration Court

"On April 19, 2010 guards followed an unlawful order to remove me from the Atlanta federal building housing the immigration courts.  Documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) show that in the months following this, supervising employees of the Executive Office of Immigration Review (EOIR) and the Federal Protective Services (FPS) tried to cover up these events, in particular, to disguise the fact that the order to remove me while I was engaged in court observations for findings reported in The Nation magazine and scholarly publications came from the immigration judge William Cassidy, the same individual reported for the first time on this blog as having deported U.S. citizen Mark Lyttle.  On April 18, 2012, I filed a complaint in the United States District Court in the Northern District of Georgia, Atlanta Division charging violations of the First, Fourth, and Fifth Amendments to the United States Constitution (Bivens v. Six Unknown Named Agents of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics), and False Imprisonment, Assault, and Battery." - Jacqueline Stevens, May 3, 2012.
