Document forgery

Lanuza-Torres, a Mexican immigrant who was nearly deported after a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement lawyer forged a key document in his case, accomplished a fair amount by suing over the misconduct. The lawsuit helped prompt a criminal investigation that sent the lawyer to jail, established legal precedent concerning constitutional rights during immigration proceedings, and resulted in a small settlement from the lawyer. But the case failed in its effort to hold the federal government liable for its lawyer's actions, and now the Justice Department is trying to squeeze him and his attorneys for legal fees and costs that will likely top $100,000.(AP Photo/Elaine Thompson, File)
