Over a month ago, the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) experienced a “catastrophic hardware failure” that caused many of its record keeping and case management systems inaccessible. The result was that for over a month cases were not being updated in the system.
On May 19, 2014 EOIR announced that the data recovery team, who had been working around the clock, was able to recover the data and create new drives for those which had failed. Their electronic databases are again functional and staff will update until all case information is current. The system has been rebuilt in such a way to “result in greater assurance that such issues will not again” occur.
How did we do?
