Lanuza v. Love, 15-35408

Reversed the dismissal of a lawful permanent resident's Bivens action against a government immigration attorney who intentionally submitted a forged document in an immigration proceeding to harm the individual's case. The attorney, who was criminally prosecuted and barred from practicing law for 10 years for his actions, argued that it would be improper to extend the Bivens remedy to this situation. Disagreeing, the Ninth Circuit concluded that a Bivens remedy was available on these specific facts.
