Original Date AnnouncedAugust 16, 2019
The EOIR Director issues Policy Memo 19-13, substantially restricting the use of status dockets. A status docket is used by judges to receive updates on developments outside the hearing that may influence or determine the outcome of the case (e.g., approval of an immigrant visa petition). Under the Director's new policy, the only cases that can be placed on a status docket are those in which a court order is involved and prevents the IJ from proceeding to final adjudication.
