A Triche Immigration Appeals case is now under consideration by the United States Supreme Court. On Friday, October 19, a team of attorneys filed a Petition for a Writ of Certiorari in Gutierrez v. Sessions, 887 F.3d 770 (6th Cir. 2018). Ms. Gutierrez’s attorneys seek review of an important “crimmigration” law question, on which the circuits are now split: does a “merely ambiguous” criminal conviction record serve to disqualify an alien seeking relief from removal under the US Immigration and Nationality Act? Dr. Triche is on the team by virtue of having represented Ms. Gutirrez before the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals. Lead counsel before the Supremes is E. Joshua Rosenkranz of Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe, LLP, who is joined on lead by his truly spectacular fellow Orrick attorneys, Brian Goldberg and Cynthia Stein. Orrick has generously adopted the case pro bono during this Petition for Cert and its lead-up.

The Supreme Court generally takes around six weeks to decide on a Petition for Writ of Certiorari. If this one is granted, Ms. Miriam Gutierrez will be given an opportunity to argue her full case before the Court.
