On April 12, 2014, the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) — the U.S. Department of Justice agency that oversees the court system — issued a statement that due to a hardware failure, Immigration Courts were unable to perform certain functions related to their computer systems. The failure prevented court clerks from accessing court records, entering new ones in the system, and making audio recordings of hearings. Individuals and their attorneys were unable to obtain information about cases using the Court’s automated system.

Immigration Courts nationwide are still operating on their normal schedules, but some cases may be continued. While certain computer system functions are now operational, the system has not been updated since April 12.  It is undetermined when the system will once again be updated and fully operational.
