I'm guessing you're not in law school yet, or you'd know to look in the procedural history contained within the case itself.

I appreciate the rib newbie but the farthest it goes back to is the INS. I guess I'll have to look up the trial court on the database at work. Thanks anyways.

You know the answer to your question, and you're still asking it? From what you said, it was an appeal from an INS administrative decision. Am I missing something?

There was no Art III trial court - it originated with an Immigration Judge -> Board of Immigration Appeals -> 5th COA [courtesy of the Petition for Cert's Statement of the Case courtesy of SCOTUSBlog]

If you have a lexis account, just hit the "shepardize" button.
If you have a westlaw account, hit the "keycite" button.

You should be getting the lower court opinion and any briefs/motions filed in the case. What else are you looking for?

Key Cite won't show the EOIR decision; you need to take the extra step of clicking on "Direct History" to pull that up.

2007 WL 4624548

edit: Never mind. After looking over the thread, I see that the OP actually found this decision, but does not understand how judicial review of orders of removal works and is therefore confused.
