Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
19-632 9th Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2020

Issue: Whether an alien satisfies her burden of proof to establish that she meets the applicable eligibility requirements for discretionary cancellation of removal when the record establishes that she has been convicted under a statute defining multiple crimes, at least some of which would constitute disqualifying offenses, but it is inconclusive as to which crime formed the basis of the alien’s conviction.
