Bassene v. Holder (9th Cir. - July 23, 2013)

It is a published immigration opinion by Judge Pregerson, with Judge Fletcher a district court judge sitting by designation on the panel.  So you pretty much know up front how the case is coming out.

But go ahead and read it anyway.  It's a pretty persuasive opinion that makes you seriously question what's going on in immigration court, and the attitude displayed by at least one IJ.  Seems like a fairly clear case.
