9th Circuit reopens CAT Claim


The Ninth Circuit granted the petition for review and remanded, holding that the BIA abused its discretion in denying the petitioner’s motion to reopen removal proceedings to apply for protection under the Convention Against Torture (CAT), because it disregarded or discredited undisputed new evidence submitted by the petitioner regarding increased violence toward homosexuals in Ethiopia, including reports of violence by both the government and private citizens.
