Ricketts v. AG — immigration — dismissal — Jordan
On Monday, the Third Circuit held that, when a deportation proceeding is transferred out-of-circuit to determine whether the person the government is trying to deport actually is a U.S. citizen, an appeal from that determination must go to the circuit court where the case was transferred to, not the circuit court where the case originated. The Third Circuit acknowledged that this holding may conflict with a prior Ninth Circuit ruling.
Joining Jordan were Greenaway and Fisher. The appeal was decided without oral argument.
