United States Fourth Circuit

Ojo v. Lynch, 15-1138

In an immigration action challenging the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) decision denying petitioner, the adopted son of a U.S. citizen, the chance to reopen his removal proceedings, the petition for review is granted where a child is adopted under the Immigration and Nationality Act, 8 U.S.C. section 1101(b)(1)(E)(i), on the date that a state court rules the adoption effective, and the BIA's summary disregard of facially valid nunc pro tunc adoption orders issued by state courts is an abuse of discretion.
