Judge Denies Joe Giudice’s Time Extension Request In Deportation Appeal!

New details have emerged in Joe Giudice ongoing deportation case. The Real Housewives of New Jersey husband’s request for an extension of time to file a brief in his appeal was denied, according to Radar Online.

As previously reported, the father-of-four filed for an extension to submit a reply brief after the Attorney General demanded for him to be deported from the United States to his native Italy.  Joe initially didn’t file the right paperwork, and was in danger of having his entire case thrown out. However, he soon resubmitted the documents, and was considered in “compliance” on September 3, reports the outlet.

On September 12, the Third Circuit Court shut down his extension request. Joe was ordered to file a his response by October 15.

In July, Joe submitted his final brief to the Third Circuit Court, outlining reasons he should remain in the United States.

On behalf of the Attorney General, Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Division Joseph H. Hunt submitted a 40-page rebuttal to the court on August 14, agreeing with an immigration judge’s initial ruling to deport him.

An immigration judge ruled in October 2018 that Giudice be deported on the grounds that he committed an aggravated felony — which holds as the highest level crime in the U.S.

Most recently, Joe made a video appearance during a bond hearing on Wednesday, September 11, which Teresa was present at the hearing, as was his mother, sister, brother and two dozen other family members. Joe and Teresa's four daughters did not attend as they were all in school.

Joe's lawyer requested that he be released from ICE custody so he can wait out his deportation appeal with his family, according to PEOPLE. According to a source, the hearing lasted one hour. The judge did not issue a decision but is expected to issue a written one within a week.

If the judge rules in Giudice’s favor, he will be able to return to his home to await the rest of his deportation case. If the judge rules in favor of the Attorney General’s Office, Joe will have to wait out his case in the detention center that he is currently in and will have no other recourse.

“Joe is anxious and he desperately wants to come home,” an insider revealed. “This is obviously a very critical hearing for Joe and his family,” Leonard told Page Six. “We are hopeful that the Court will grant him bond.”
