Representing the National Association of Immigration Judges pro bono, the lawyers at Lim, Ruger & Kim, LLP filed  an Amicus Curiae brief in support of an Iranian-American immigration judge’s federal lawsuit against the Executive Office For Immigration Review (“EOIR”), a branch of the Department of Justice.  This case arose out of the EOIR’s blanket and perpetual order barring an immigration judge of Iranian descent from all matters involving persons from Iran after she accepted an invitation from the White House Office on Public Engagement to a “roundtable” of Iranian-American leaders and allegedly became an “advocate” for the Iranian-American community.  Click here to read the Press Release.
