Mendez Rojas Settlement Agreement

Community Alert

Mendez Rojas is a class action lawsuit brought on behalf of asylum seekers challenging the federal government’s failure to give them notice of the one-year deadline for filing asylum applications as well as its failure to guarantee them a mechanism through which to abide by that deadline.

On March 29, 2018, the court granted plaintiffs’ motion for summary judgment and ordered the government to provide notice to class members of the one-year filing deadline and to adopt, publicize, and implement uniform procedural mechanisms that will ensure that class members are able to file their asylum applications in a timely manner. The parties have now reached a settlement agreement for implementing the court’s order.
