< Back to current issue of Immigration Daily < Back to current issue of Immigrant's Weekly

Dear Editor:
The case of In re Miguel Gadda, Attorney, 23 I&N Dec. 645 (BIA Sept. 25, 2003), is the first Board of Immigration Appeals legal ethics decision in about 10 years, and only the sixth of all time. I have recently written a short discussion of the case, which will appear in a forthcoming issue of Bender's Immigration Bulletin. As former chairman of the legal ethics committee, Washington-Baltimore AILA Chapter, and frequent lecturer on the topic, I was somewhat surprised, and interested, to see Mr. Gadda's letter to the Editor in yesterday's Immigration Daily, railing against the concept that he should be subject to discipline by his state bar. While one can sympathize with Mr. Gadda's discomfort at getting disbarred, by the California bar, by the U.S. Justice Department, and by U.S. federal courts, his arguments fly in the face of the fundamental organization of the U.S. legal system. I recommend that lawyers read the BIA's decision, which is clear, correct, and instructive.

Bruce A. Hake, Attorney at Law
Damascus, Maryland
