Nasser Zaree, Petitioner, v. Immigration and Naturalization Service, Respondent, 73 F.3d 372 (9th Cir. 1995)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - 73 F.3d 372 (9th Cir. 1995) Submitted Dec. 19, 1995. *Decided Dec. 27, 1995

Before: SNEED, TROTT, and HAWKINS, Circuit Judges.


Nasser Zaree, a native and citizen of Iran, petitions for review of the Board of Immigration Appeals' (BIA) decision finding him deportable and denying his applications for asylum and withholding of deportation pursuant to 8 U.S.C. §§ 1158(a) and 1253(h).

On October 17, 1995, the BIA granted Zaree's motion to reopen deportation proceedings to allow him to apply for suspension of deportation pursuant to 8 U.S.C. § 1254(a) (1), and remanded this matter to the immigration judge. The BIA also found that as Zaree has been granted derivative asylee status pursuant to 8 C.F.R. Sec. 208.21(c), he may apply after one year for adjustment of status pursuant to 8 C.F.R. Sec. 209.2; and if adjustment of status is granted, he may move to terminate deportation proceedings.

Accordingly, the petition for review is DENIED as moot.


The panel unanimously finds this case suitable for decision without oral argument. Fed. R. App. P. 34(a); 9th Cir.R. 34-4
