Immigration Judge Daniel Meisner Retires

As of January 3, 2007, Immigration Judge Daniel Meisner in Newark, NJ has retired, 17 years after being appointed to be an immigration judge (he had worked for 16 years for INS before becoming an immigration judge). The court staff has posted a notice that his cases will be reassigned to one of the other immigration judges in Newark over the next few months. (The other judges are Henry Dogin, Annie Garcy, Frederic Leeds, Eugene Pugliese, Margaret Reichenberg, and Alberto Reifkohl.)

Some statistics on the web about Judge Meisner: TRAC did a study that calculated that Judge Meisner granted asylum 24% of the time from 2000-2005, which was around 60th toughest out of 208 judges they calculated. So a bit less likely to grant than the average immigration judge. According to a graph provided by TRAC, he denied well over 90% of the asylum cases in 2005. Good luck to Judge Meisner in his retirement!
