Mandatory Detention Victory in Federal District Court of Colorado

By June 26, 2014News

The MLO, together with co-counsel University of Denver Sturm College of Law Professor Chris Lasch, recently won a habeas corpus case before Judge Blackburn in the Federal District Court of Colorado on a mandatory immigration detention case.  The court found that our client is not subject to mandatory detention and must be provided a bond hearing in his immigration case.  This is an important victory not just for our client, but also for other people in immigration detention.  Much thanks to Professor Lasch, MLO attorneys Hans Meyer and Lee Knox, and MLO intern Ruth Swift for their pro bono work on this case.  

The decision is available for review below:
