Tran v. Gonzales, Attorney General

Ralf D. Wiedemann

Case Conclusion Date:July 12, 2005

Practice Area:Immigration

Outcome:The court granted our petition for review.

Description:Third Circuit Court of Appeals held that Mr. Tran had not been convicted of a crime of violence, and thus he was not deportable as charged by the government. A crime of recklessness is not a crime of violence, which requires intent to use or risk using force.
