Ninth Circuit Denies En Banc in Tchoukhrova

Technical difficulties have kept me from posting earlier today, but there's at least some semi-big news: The Ninth Circuit today denied rehearing en banc in Tchoukhrova v. Gonzales, in which the panel held that a Russian child with cerebral palsy and his parents were entitled to asylum because of the terrible way in which children with disabilities are treated in Russia. Judge Kozinski, joined by five of his colleagues, dissented from the denial of en banc rehearing.
