Acosta-Olivarria v. Lynch, 10-70902

Petition for review of the Board of Immigration Appeals' decision denying adjustment of status pursuant to its published opinion In re Briones, which held that adjustment under 8 U.S.C. section 1255(i) was not available to an alien who was inadmissible under 8 U.S.C. section 1182(a)(9)(C)(i)(I), is granted where petitioner reasonably relief on this circuit's law in effect at the time he applied for adjustment, Acosta v. Gonzales, under which he could apply for adjustment despite being inadmissible, because he was eligible for a visa.
