Court Denies Petition for Review, Citing Bermudez-Cota


The Ninth Circuit denied the petition for review of the BIA’s denial of relief from removal after the petitioner argued that in light of Pereira v. Sessions, a Notice to Appear (NTA) lacking the time and date of the hearing was insufficient to vest jurisdiction with the immigration court. Citing Matter of Bermudez-Cota, the court held that even when an NTA doesn’t specify the time and date of an individual’s initial removal hearing, as long as a notice of hearing specifying this information is later sent to the individual in a timely manner, the immigration court has jurisdiction over the individual’s removal proceedings.
