Kartasheva v. Holder, No. 08-2243

Petition for review of BIA's denial for asylum and related relief is granted, and the ruling is vacated and remanded where the court finds lacking an itemization of the substantial evidence necessary for an adverse credibility determination, and because the Board limited its reasoning to the adverse credibility finding and did not discuss petitioner's eligibility for relief, the case is remanded to the agency to make a well-reasoned and well-explained determination of petitioner's eligibility.
