With the Support of Lim Ruger's Pro Bono Amicus Brief The U.S. DOJ Lifts Blanket Recusal of Immigration Judge Based on Ethnicity

Lim Ruger provided pro-bono representation to the National Association of Immigration Judges as amicus curiae in recently resolved federal court litigation involving the blanket recusal of a U.S. Immigration Judge based solely on her ethnicity. In 2014 the U.S. DOJ, which employs immigration judges, issued a blanket recusal order preventing Immigration Judge Afsaneh Tabaddor from hearing any cases involving "Iranian nationals." Judge Tabaddor, who is also an adjunct professor at the U.C.L.A. School of Law, is ethnically Iranian. She has engaged in many off-the-bench community service and outreach efforts, including some involving the Iranian-American community. After Judge Tabaddor was invited to and attended a White House roundtable on Iranian-American affairs, the DOJ division that supervises immigration judges issued its blanket recusal order. When Judge Tabaddor sued the DOJ in district court, Lim Ruger's client NAIJ, of which all immigration judges are a member, took a strong supportive stand in the litigation, arguing in its amicus brief that the DOJ action threatened the independence of the court and the rights of all immigration judges. The NAIJ argued that without a finding of bias or impartiality in fact the recusal order could have a chilling effect on free association and community engagement by judges.
