Supreme Court Rules in Firm’s Favor in Immigration Case

On April 23, 2013, the Supreme Court ruled 7-2 in favor of the firm's client in Moncrieffe v. Holder, a case involving the immigration consequences for distribution of a small amount of marijuana without remuneration, that Tom Goldstein argued in October. The Court ruled that if a noncitizen’s conviction for a marijuana distribution offense fails to establish that the offense involved either remuneration or more than a small amount of marijuana, it is not an aggravated felony under the Immigration and Nationality Act.
