Did the IJ, BIA, or court mention your expert or their testimony in their decision? [Visible to CGRS only]: 
Yes
Please provide additional information, if necessary: [Visible to CGRS only]: 
I moved for remand based on Dr. Slack's report, which he submitted during the appeal. (Respondent was pro se before the immigration judge.) BIA called the report "thoroughly prepared" but said it was not previously unavailable (without explanation and despite much evidence to the contrary) and that it would not have changed the result.
Please share any other information about your experience with this expert. [Visible to CGRS only]: 
I enjoyed working with Dr. Slack and will likely be working with him again for a pending Mexican asylum case in the CGRS database.
