Attorney Mooradian recently succeeded on an appeal related to an immigrant juvenile client. The client, who was detained for a significant period of time in Immigration detention at Suffolk County House of Correction, has been determined not to be a danger to the public.
The Immigration Judge had made a finding several months ago that Attorney Mooradian's client was a danger to the public and would be held as dangerous pending the outcome of the case. Attorney Mooradian appealed the decision to the Board of Immigration Appeals, arguing that the judge's decision was clearly erroneous given the rebuttal evidence submitted to the court, including letters of support from numerous community members.
In fact, the Board of Immigration appeals agreed by sustaining the appeal. The case has been remanded to the Immigration Judge, ordering that a reasonable bond be set and indicating that the client is not dangerous.
