Banuelos v. Barr, 953 F.3d 1176 (10th Cir. Mar. 25, 2020)

This case discusses application of the “stop-time” rule when determining qualification for a remedy known as “cancellation of removal,” which allows noncitizens to avoid removal under certain circumstances. As a matter of first impression, the Tenth Circuit held that the stop-time rule does not apply when a non-citizen receives an incomplete notice to appear (one missing the time of a hearing) that is followed by a notice of hearing that supplies the previously omitted information.
