The United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit hereby provides notice that it intends to adopt the attached proposed Local Rule 18.0. An explanation for the proposed Local Rule Follows.
In order to ensure the orderly presentation of issues placed before this Court in immigration cases and to preserve the Court's ability to make considered decisions in such cases, the Court proposes to adopt the following Local Rule, which would apply to petitions for review and appeals from district court habeas proceedings. For such cases, the proposed rule would require the government to file a notice identifying the earliest date upon which removal of a petitioner might be made and establish that the Clerk will enter an administrative order staying removal for ten business days when a first motion for stay of removal is timely filed.
The Court of Appeals invites public comment on the proposed adoption of this Local Rule. Comments should be received by March 7, 2018 and addressed to:
