June 15, 2009
RIMPLE KUMAR, PLAINTIFF,
JANET NAPOLITANO, SECRETARY OF HOMELAND SECURITY, ET AL. DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Lawrence J. O'Neill United States District Judge
JOINT STIPULATION RE: REMAND PURSUANT TO 8 U.S.C. § 1447(b) AND PROPOSED] ORDER
This is an immigration case in which plaintiff has filed to challenge U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services' (CIS) failure to timely adjudicate her naturalization application and to seek de novo review of this application. As of the time of this filing, the agency is prepared to adjudicate the application. Because of the jurisdictional posture of the case, the agency cannot complete that process until the case is remanded with instructions to CIS. 8 U.S.C. § 1447(b).
Accordingly, the parties jointly agree that the case should be remanded with instructions to complete adjudication of the case within 60 days from the date of the order of remand. In the event CIS fails to timely complete this adjudication, the parties agree that jurisdiction will revert to this Court, and a scheduling conference will take place as soon as possible.
Dated: June 12, 2009
