Rodriguez v. Hayes, No. 08-56156

By FindLaw Staff on August 20, 2009 2:57 PM

In an action seeking a writ of habeas corpus on behalf of plaintiff and a class of aliens detained for more than six months without a bond hearing while engaged in immigration proceedings, a denial of class certification is reversed where: 1) 8 U.S.C. section 1252(f) did not bar the proposed class from receiving injunctive relief; and 2) the constitutional issue at the heart of each class member's claim for relief is common to all proposed class members.
