Van Eeton v. Beebe, 49 F. Supp. 2d 1186 (D. Ore. 1999)

Case Conclusion Date: 01.01.1999

Practice Area: Immigration

Outcome: Client was released from custody

Description: Client (who was asserting his claim that he was a Naturalized Citizen of the United States) was being detained under recently passed "mandatory detention" requirements. The court held that the mandatory-detention requirement violates substantive due process because it incarcerates all immigrants who are in INS removal proceedings without regard to whether an individual alien poses a flight risk or a danger to the community.
