Hanna v. Keisler (9th Cir. - Nov. 5, 2007)

Most of this opinion is fact-specific, and relates solely to the particular allegations made by this particular petitioner. I nonetheless mention it, briefly, for two (admittedly idiosyncratic) reasons. First, it relates to the plight of Chaldean Catholics in Iraq, a minority group about which I knew very little five years ago but now know a fair piece. Second, it's a successful immigration appeal by two USD Law alums, Douglas Nelson and Alejandro Campillo. Always nice to see local folk prevail.
