Golicov v. Lynch, 837 F.3d 1065 (10th Cir. Sept. 19, 2016)

Sep 19, 2016

A lawful permanent resident appealed an order of removal based upon his conviction for failure to stop at the command of a police officer. Extending the Supreme Court’s decision in Johnson v. United States, — U.S. —, 135 S. Ct. 2551 (2015), the Tenth Circuit vacated the order of removal and held that the Immigration and Nationality Act’s residual definition of “crime of violence” was unconstitutionally vague.
