No Jurisdiction. The Second Circuit, based on its prior precedent, found that it did not have jurisdiction to review a claim that an immigration judge erred in its application of law in determining whether an alien's removal would result in "exceptional and extremely unusual hardship." The Court stated that it agreed with the petitioner's legal position, but lacked jurisdction under its prior precedents.

The decision in Mendez v. Mukasey can be found here.
