Two immigration court judges in Denver had been conducting hearings for detainees in Dilley, Texas via video conference since December. Their regular dockets were cancelled and cases were taken off the calendar indefinitely on a rolling basis, about three weeks in advance. Now, the Denver immigration court is set to stop hearing cases from Dilley on May 1, 2015. However, the court will not resume all of its regular operations. The judges assigned to the Dilley docket will be hearing cases at the Aurora detention center immigration court several days per week. Thus, some of their individual hearings set for the summer of 2015 will be rescheduled until November 19, 2019 for now. Notices will be sent out four to six weeks in advance. The master calendar docket at the downtown court for these judges should not be impacted.
In addition, one of the judges will leave the court sometime in the next months for a new assignment. There is no indication yet how that judge’s docket will be affected.
If you have a hearing scheduled with the immigration court during the summer, you should look out for correspondence from our office regarding a possible change in your scheduled hearing date. Please contact our office if you have any questions.
