Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - 885 F.2d 875 (9th Cir. 1989)

William HINKS, Petitioner,v.IMMIGRATION AND NATURALIZATION SERVICE, Respondent.

No. 88-7178.

United States Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit.

Submitted July 25, 1989.* Decided Sept. 8, 1989.

Before FERGUSON, CYNTHIA HOLCOMB HALL and KOZINSKI, Circuit Judges.


MEMORANDUM** 

The judgment of the Board of Immigration Appeals is affirmed. While a brief is not required, a petitioner must specify his reasons for appeal. The BIA did not abuse its discretion in dismissing Hinks' appeal where Hinks, despite having been given adequate time, failed to explain what aspects of the Immigration Judge's decision were incorrect. See Martinez-Zelaya v. INS, 841 F.2d 294, 296 (9th Cir. 1988).

AFFIRMED.
