In what can only be described as a truly fantastic decision, the Ninth Circuit granted a petition for review, finding that the petitioner did not knowingly, voluntarily, and intelligent waive his right to appeal when the Immigration Judge incorrectly advised him that he had been convicted of an aggravated felony and was ineligible for any form of immigration relief.  The court noted that under current caselaw AND caselaw in existence at the time of the Immigration Judge's decision, a conviction for grand theft in California was not categorically a theft offense because it included theft of labor and theft by false pretenses, both of which fell outside the generic definition of a theft offense.
