Identity of Immigration Judges Subject to Complaints of Misconduct Revealed

Rate this Entry
The following was originally published by immigration lawyer Bryan Johnson on January 16, 2017:

The Department of Justice (“DOJ”) has aggressively concealed the identities of Immigration Judges in connection with complaints of misconduct made against them for several years.

Until today.

In response to a FOIA from the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), the DOJ released over 14,000 pages of documents in connection to 770 complaints made against immigration judges between 2008 and 2013. The lawsuit is still pending, and DOJ has yet to reveal any of the identities of the Immigration Judges.

This past weekend, I discovered that a significant portion of the documents released by the DOJ were not, in fact, redacted.

Using the information gleaned from the un-redacted documents, I identified 58 immigration judges with 443 complaints. In other words, over half of the complaints are now matched with the immigration judge whom the complaint was made against.

Here is a modified key, which you can use to identify complaints in AILA’s database linked to above with the corresponding Immigration Judge.

Here are additional documents I have already combined for the general public’s use:

IJ Vomacka Complaints

IJ Hom Complaints
IJ Cassidy Complaints
IJ Wilson Complaints
IJ Nugent Complaints
IJ Ford Complaints
IJ Pelletier Complaints
