United States Fourth Circuit

Jaghoori v. Holder, 13-1801

In this case involving retroactive application of the statutory stop-time rule, petition for review of a decision by the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) finding petitioner ineligible for cancellation of removal because of a crime he committed within his first seven years of residence in the United States is granted, where: 1) the offense and guilty plea occurred before Congress promulgated the stop-time rule; and 2) because considerations of fair notice, reasonable reliance, and settled expectations militate against retroactivity here, the "traditional presumption" against retroactivity applies.
