9th Circuit

     IMMIGRATION, ATTORNEYS – The 9th Circuit held that an immigration judge improperly found that the petitioner created delays, when the rescheduling of his removal hearing was based on a prior immigration judge’s calendar conflicts. Petitioner did not behave improperly when he waited until the day before the hearing to hire a new attorney. Petitioner’s continued trust in the first attorney does not constitute negligence or an attempt to delay the case in bad faith. See ruling.
