IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
April 20, 2012
MICHAEL C. BIGGS, ET AL.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Morrison C. England, Jr. United States District Judge
BENJAMIN B. WAGNER United States Attorney AUDREY B. HEMESATH Assistant United States Attorney 501 I Street, Suite 10-100 Sacramento, California 95814 Telephone: (916) 554-2729 Attorneys for Defendants
JOINT STATUS REPORT
This is an immigration case in which petitioner challenges the decision of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS) to deny a waiver of grounds of inadmissibility pursuant to 8 U.S.C. § 1882(a)(6)(C)(I), the denial of her Application By Refugee For Waiver of Grounds of Excludability, and her application for adjustment of status by CIS. The parties now request that the case be held in abeyance, as CIS is reopening the matter at the administrative level. Because the matter will be reopened, there will be no final administrative decision for this Court to review until the conclusion of that process. Under these circumstances, good cause exists for modification of the pretrial scheduling order entered by this Court on September 20, 2011. Upon conclusion of the reopened administrative proceedings, or by July 16, 2012, the parties will submit a joint status report indicating the case progress, and setting forth a new proposed scheduling order if appropriate.
Accordingly, good cause having been demonstrated, the parties respectfully request that the case be held in abeyance pending reopening before CIS.
Pursuant to this Joint Stipulation and for the reasons stated therein, IT IS HEREBY
ORDERED that the case is held in abeyance. A joint status report shall be filed no later than July 16, 2012.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
