Editor's Comments of the Day
No new cases today. ILW.COM strives to bring you every immigration related case from the US courts. Due to legal and ethical
considerations, we will only carry cases published on web sites of the courts. So if you do not see a case here it may not be
because we are not aware of it, it may be because the court does not maintain a web site to make its decisions available to the
public. Some courts, such as the Southern District of New York, publish on the web opinions of only certain judges. Other
courts have no web presence at all. Since the Internet has taken its place besides print and broadcast as a means for sharing
information with the public, every federal court should have a web site and make all published opinions available electronically.
Until all courts make their opinions available directly to the public, if you are a party to an immigration related case and you
do not see the opinion on the site, please e-mail a copy to email@example.com or FAX us a copy at 212 563-4438. We will share it with the public.
