Operating Policy and Procedure Memorandum No. 84-7: Court Proceedings against EOIR Employees [open pdf - 66KB]
"Occasionally, a tort action or other court proceeding may be instituted against an EOIR [Executive Office for Immigration Review] employee for employment-related matters. In most circumstances, the Department of Justice represents its employees in this litigation. This office has received monographs from the Department of Justice Civil Division which provide information specifically on defense of tort claims. Copies of these monographs are available upon request. In the event that you or any other employee in your office is sued on any job-related matter, whether in an official or individual capacity, please contact your liaison counsel immediately. Similarly, if EOIR is sued or if the organization or an employee is involved in a suit in any way that is job-related, contact your liaison counsel immediately. Please forward any written material that you may receive regarding a lawsuit to your liaison counsel as soon as possible. In this way, we will be able to quickly ascertain the facts, acquire representation, and assist in the defense of the case."
