Hakopian v. Mukasey (9th Cir. - Nov. 19, 2008)

"I've got some good news and some bad news. Good news first. The United States was totally and completely wrong about your asylum application being time-barred. As was the immigration judge and the BIA below. So we're going to publish an opinion that not only makes that fact crystal clear, but that also preserves your name forever in the annals of the Federal Reporter.

Now for the bad news. We're also issuing an unpublished memorandum disposition. Which ships you back to Iran."

Sorry about that.
