CA9 on Asylum, Motions to Reopen: Aliyev v. Barr

Aliyev v. Barr

"We hold that the BIA abused its discretion by determining that a noncitizen who seeks to reopen an earlier application for relief and attaches that application to the motion has failed to attach the “appropriate application for relief” as required by § 1003.2(c)(1). ... We therefore grant the petition and remand."
