In a case in which the National Immigrant Justice Center (NIJC) presented objective medical corroboration of gang-rape, NIJC argued that the immigration judge’s adverse credibility finding was erroneous and that the Board of Immigration Appeals irrationally refused to reopen the case. The Court of Appeals refused to reopen the case in an unpublished and unexplained decision.  The Fourth Circuit denied a petition for review and a subsequent petition for rehearing.  NIJC’s petition for certiorari to the U.S. Supreme Court was rejected.
