United States Ninth Circuit

Flores v. Lynch, 15-56434

In an action to enforce a 1997 Settlement with the government which set a nationwide policy for the detention, release, and treatment of minors detained in Immigration and Naturalization Service custody, the District Court's order granting plaintiff class' motion to enforce the Settlement is: 1) affirmed in part where the Settlement unambiguously applies both to minors who are accompanied and unaccompanied by their parent; and 2) reversed in part where the district court erred in interpreting the Settlement to provide release rights to accompanying adults.
