Feds Deport American Citizen to Yemen; Supreme Court GVRs the Case to CA3

(ORDER LIST: 595 U.S.) MONDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2021 CERTIORARI -- SUMMARY DISPOSITIONS 20-1492 ABDULLA, ABDULMALIK M. V. GARLAND, ATT'Y GEN. The petition for a writ of certiorari is granted. The judgment is vacated, and the case is remanded to the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit for further consideration in light of the brief filed by the Acting Solicitor General for the United States on August 27, 2021.

Here is the SG brief: "The petition for a writ of certiorari should be granted, the judgment of the court of appeals [971 F.3d 409] vacated, and the case remanded to the court of appeals for further proceedings in light of the position expressed in this brief."

Here is the SCOTUSblog case page.

Here is a quote from yesterday's Law360 article: "Though they said they were grateful the case was remanded, Goldberg and Hisey both expressed their shock that the U.S. had deported Abdulla while his case was ongoing. "No one should've been deported to Yemen to begin with, but the fact we've deported a U.S. citizen is horrific," Goldberg said."
