Ongoing Case Highlight: Nak Kim Chhoeun v. Marin, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 17560 (C.D. Cal. Jan. 3, 2019)


Petitioners have previously filed a class action challenging the US government policy of rounding up and placing in immigration detention Cambodian nationals living in the United States. The petitioners filed for a temporary restraining order, claiming the government has continued this policy since it began in late 2017 with no notice on such raid.

The court granted the TRO petition, ordering the government to provide at least 14 days notice to class members and counsel prior to detention.


Much credit to Sidley Austin, representing the class members from this reprehensible policy that is rounding up from the Cambodian refugees who sought asylum in the United States after escaping the Khmer Rouge's killing fields.
