Editor's Comments of the Day

In Barahona-Gomez v. Reno, No. 97-15952, (9th Cir. Jan. 10, 2001), the court re-examined its ruling in Barahona-Gomez v. Reno, 167 F. 3rd 1228 (9th Cir. 1999) ("Barahona I") in light of the Supreme Court's decision in Reno v. American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, 535 U.S. 471 (1999) ("American-Arab").

In Barahona I the Plaintiffs sought injunctive relief preventing from applying directives from the Chairman of the Board of Immigration Appeals ("BIA") and the Chief Immigration Judge that ordered Immigration Judges and the BIA not to grant suspension cases until further notice. The district court rejected the argument that the IIRIRA limits on judicial review divested it of jurisdiction, and granted a preliminary injunction. The district court upheld the issuance of the premliminary injunction, but after the decision in American-Arab asked the parties to submit supplemental briefings. In Barahona-Gomez v. Reno, No. 97-15952, (9th Cir. Jan. 10, 2001), the court reaffirmed its decision in Barahona I finding that the district court's entry of a preliminary injunction was within it jurisdiction, and remanded the matter for continuation of the litigation and further examination of the class.
