Kerry v. Din, 13-1402

In a case brought by a citizen and resident of the US on behalf of her husband, an Afghan citizen and former civil servant in the Taliban regime, who was denied an immigrant visa, alleging that the Government’s denial of her husband's visa application violated her constitutional rights, the Ninth Circuit's holding, that plaintiff had a protected liberty interest in her marriage that entitled her to review the denial of her husband's visa and that the Government deprived her of that liberty interest without due process when it denied the husband's visa application without providing a more detailed explanation of its reasons, is vacated and remanded where the Government did not deprive plaintiff of any constitutional right entitling her to due process of law.
