Pandemic Pandemonium as Attorneys Resist Return to Courtroom

A pair of new and interesting twists in the ongoing story of lawyers resisting in-person appearances in Immigration Courts due to COVID-19 surfaced recently. First, an opinion was issued by the N.Y. State Bar Association Committee on Professional Ethics stating that an attorney could withdraw from a case if he/she had a fear of contracting COVID-19 that would interfere with effective representation. The option relied upon New York Rule of Professional Conduct 1.16 which allows withdrawal when "the lawyer's mental or physical condition renders it difficult for the lawyer to carry out the representation effectively". (This is analogous to New Jersey RPC 1.16 (a)(2) which states a lawyer "shall withdraw" from representation if "the lawyer's physical or mental condition materially impairs the lawyer's ability to represent the client.) Both provisions require an application to a tribunal, if the case is before one. Immigration Court is of course a tribunal within the meaning of the RPCs.

No More Safe Harbor… Take Two: Immediate Invalidation of Privacy Shield

Today, July 16, 2020, the Court of Justice invalidated Privacy Shield as a means to self-certify that a business is securely and appropriately protecting personal data when transferring such data from the EU to the United States. In part, the Court found that the Privacy Shield did not adequately ensure individuals' audit rights or appropriate recourse, and therefore, the Court invalidated Privacy Shield, effective immediately. There is no grace period.
