Joseph v. Lynch

7th Circuit

Joseph v. Lynch (July 14, 2015)

HAMILTON, Bauer, Manion

Petitioner, Eugene Joseph (Joseph”) appeals the denial of VAWA petition by USCIS and the BIA. The Seventh Circuit dismissed Joseph’s claim for lack of jurisdiction. He did not raise all issues at the BIA and therefore the issues are not exhausted. In addition, what Joseph is contesting as factual or legal error is actually an opinion and is not reviewable by the court. See Jawad v. Holder 686 F.d3 400 (7th Cir. 2012); Khan v. Filip 554 F.d3, 689 (7th Cir. 2009). 

Habib v. Lynch

Palma-Martinez v. Lynch

7th Circuit

Palma-Martinez v. Lynch (May 11, 2015)

MANION, Posner, Tinder

Summary: The Petitioner is an LPR who committed a turpitude offense too soon after obtaining LPR status to be eligible for LPR Cancellation of Removal.  Moreover, it appears that he didn’t have someone who could file a visa petition for him to allow him to re-adjust status with a waiver.  He therefore sought a “standalone” 212(h) waiver.
