Reuters and Law360 highlight Lowenstein Sandler’s filing of a class action lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey against various federal agencies and their leaders on behalf of young immigrants wrongfully disqualified from receiving Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (SIJS). According to the suit, the plaintiffs’ SIJS applications were unfairly denied because they were between 18 and 21 years old when they obtained child welfare findings from a state juvenile court, a necessary predicate to applying for SIJS. At least 100 other immigrants in New Jersey are facing similar denials. (The Lowenstein team included: Catherine WeissNatalie J. KranerCraig Dashiell, Eric R. Suggs, Tracy F. Buffer, and Claudia Lorenzo.) (subscription required to view certain content) View Lowenstein’s news announcement about this case.
