Purveegiin (not precedential): Government Deported Immigrant Without Alerting Third Circuit Considering A Stay Request

Purveegiin v. Holder, No. 07-1227 (3d Cir. Aug. 25, 2009) (not precedential)

Fascinating -- Mr. Purveegiin asked the Third Circuit for a stay of removal. While the motion was pending and without notifying the court in advance (as is the government's usual practice), the government removed Mr. Purveegiin from the United States. It is disappointing to see that the government sometimes removes people even while their request for a stay of removal is pending and does not inform the Third Circuit about it. The Third Circuit appointed counsel for Mr. Puveegiin, who remained in Mongolia because he and the government were at an impasse about the terms and conditions for him to return to the United States.
