Cuellar de Osorio v. Mayorkas (9th Cir. - Sept. 26, 2012)

I generally give my normative take on a case.  Sometimes I get descriptive.

I'm going to limit myself to the latter with respect to this case.  I'll also limit my description to a pure prediction.

The Supreme Court will grant certiorari in this case.  It will reverse.  In a decision that's not nearly as close as the 6-5 split of the en banc court here.

Which, if I'm right, will be the first time that an appellate opinion by Judge Murguia gets reversed by the Court.  But not the last.

Now we just have to wait a couple of years to see if I'm right.
