Grant of Petition for Review of Denial of Cancellation of Removal

In Lewis v. Holder, No. 09-2511, a petition for review of an order of the BIA dismissing petitioner's appeal of the denial of her application for cancellation of removal, the court granted the petition where the BIA's "reissuance" of a decision triggered a new thirty-day period to obtain judicial review.


As the court wrote:  "Petitioner Sophia Lewis seeks review of a July 9, 2003 order of the BIA dismissing her appeal of the denial of her application for cancellation of removal. The BIA "reissued" its order on May 12, 2009. In re Lewis, No. A041 350 703 (B.I.A. May 12, 2009)."
