The Seventh Circuit has remanded a case in which the petitioner sought withholding of removal on account of his status as an HIV positive, unmarried male, who would be perceived by Honduran society as gay on account of his medical conditions.  The court noted that the applicant's claim was corroborated by an expert witness, and that the Immigration Judge gave full credit to that expert's testimony.  The court also reiterated that the "more likely than not standard" for withholding of removal cannot be taken literally to require a "greater than 50% chance" of persecution.
