Asylum Granted in Pro Bono Persecution Case

On June 9, 2010, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services division granted asylum to a Cravath pro bono client who feared persecution in his native country of Turkey on the basis of his sexual orientation. His case had been referred to Cravath by Immigration Equality, a national organization that advocates for equal immigration rights for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and HIV-positive community. The Cravath team included partner Michael T. Reynolds and associates Pierre J. Bouchard, James Derek Mize and Matthew H. Bloom.
