Servs., No. 09-56089, an action challenging the denial of plaintiffs' applications for adjustment of immigration status, the court vacated summary judgment for defendants where a district court may not hear an alien's challenge to the government's denial of an application to adjust status when removal proceedings are simultaneously pending against the alien.

    pending against the alien. We hold it may not."
