Indefinite Detention Cases

In January 2008, the IRC, along with co-counsel American Civil Liberties Union, presented arguments in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals on behalf of two immigrant men held indefinitely in immigration detention pending resolution of their deportation cases. These latest efforts are part of a legal challenge against indefinite detention that IRC and ACLU began back in November 2006 when they filed lawsuits in district court seeking the release of four immigrant men held in indefinite detention. Mark Baller ('08), Kimere Kimball ('08) and Michael Kaufman ('07) developed arguments presented in briefs and at oral argument.
