US v. Valdivia Flores, 15-50384

Reversing a criminal judgment and remanding the case of a man convicted of the attempted reentry by a removed alien who contended that his prior removal was invalid because a drug trafficking conviction was incorrectly determined to be an aggravated felony, holding that the defendant's waiver of the right to seek judicial review of his removal was not considered and intelligent because the notice of intent to issue the decision suggested he could only contest removability on factual grounds, was unrepresented, and never got a hearing despite requesting one.
