Rude Judge

Unfortunately, not all the Immigration Judges are going to maintain a professional demeanor on the bench all the time.  They are human, just like you and I.  However, just because you may feel that the Judge was rude to you in your case, that does not always mean that you can get their decision overturned.  Under a new Ninth Circuit case, Rizo v. Lynch, which just came out on January 14, 2016, a Judge's decision can not be overturned solely based on the fact that they were aggressive during proceedings.  You will have to be able to show that something in their words or actions caused "prejudice" against you, in order to have the decicion overturned for due process.
