मदरल्याण्ड नेपालका निर्देशक पाण्डे ४ बर्षदेखि स्वयम् टिपीएसमा रही आएको र ठुलो जोखिम उठाएर मुद्दा दायर गर्न अग्रसर भएको उनले सीधाकुरालाई बताए । कथमकदाचित कोर्टले मुद्दा हराएमा अत्यन्त जोखिममा रहेका १५ सय नेपालीहरु सहित आफु अमेरिकाबाट डिपोर्ट हुन सक्ने उनले खुलाए । आफुले यति जोखिम उठाउदा ९ हजार भन्दा बढी नेपालीहरुको रोजीरोटी, पारिबारिक तनाव र उनीहरुको ”ड्रिम अमेरिका” सफल हुन्छ भने मैले किन यति ठुलो कदम नउठाउने? भन्दै पाण्डेले ”सर्ब हिताय” उद्देश्य राखेको सीधाकुरालाई बताए ।

युनिएनले सज्जन पाण्डेसंग रिटेनर अग्रिमेंट गरेर मुद्दा अगाडी बढाउन सफल भएको हो, सरकारले अनफेयर इमिग्रेसन ल ल्याउँदा यस्तो किसिमको मुद्दा दायर गर्ने गरेको छ । भन्न त न्युयोर्कका केहि व्यक्तिहरुले हामीले यो गर्यौं र त्यो गर्यौं भनेर दिउसै ढोली बजाएर उनका मिडियाहरुमा बजाईसकेका छन् तर बास्तबिकता यो भएको निर्देशक पाण्डेले सीधाकुरालाई बताए ।

नेपाल र होंडूरसका टिपीएस नबिकरण नगरेको कारण दुवै देशका ३-३ जनाको तर्फबाट मुद्दा दायर भएको जनाइएको छ । यस्तो किसिमको मुद्दा युनिएनले सुडान, हाइटी, एल साल्भाडोर र निकाकारागुवाका टिपीएसधारीको तर्फबाट अदालतमा दायर गरी अदालतले ति देशका टिपीएसधारीलाई तत्काल डिपोर्ट नहुने खालको निर्णय दिएको बताइएको छ । कम्तिमा नेपालका लागि यति नै निर्णय अदालतबाट प्राप्त गर्न सकियो भने अन्य उपाय पछि फेरी गर्न सकिने उद्देश्यले आफुले सानो भए पनि त्याग गरेको मदरल्याण्ड नेपालका निर्देशक पाण्डेले बताए ।

RETAINER AGREEMENT
1। THE RETAINER: This retainer agreement is entered into between SAJJAN PANDEY
(the “Client”), the American Civil Liberties Union Foundation of Southern California
(“ACLUF”), the National Day Laborer Organizing Network (“NDLON”), Asian Americans
Advancing Justice – Los Angeles (“AAAJ-LA”), Asian Americans Advancing Justice – Asian
Law Caucus (“AAAJ-ALC”) and Sidley Austin LLP (“Sidley”) (collectively, “Attorneys”)। The
purpose of this retainer is to secure legal representation by the Attorneys for the Client in
connection with a lawsuit to be filed in federal district court in the Northern District of California
challenging the revocation of the Temporary Protected Status program for certain countries (the
“Suit”)। After this agreement is executed, the Client will be represented by the Attorneys। The
Client understands that the Attorneys may, from time to time, work with outside lawyers, law
students, legal interns, and experts on the Suit। The Client authorizes the Attorneys to employ
such personnel on the Suit। The Client understands that the Attorneys will perform or direct the
tasks that, in the opinion of the Attorneys are required in order to provide effective representation
of the Client in the Suit। In order to enable the Attorneys to provide to the Client effective
representation, the Client also agrees to disclose fully and accurately all relevant facts related to
the Suit, and to keep the Attorneys fully informed of all developments relating to the Suit।
2। SCOPE OF REPRESENTATION: The Client understands that the Attorneys are
providing legal representation only in connection with the Suit; the Attorneys have no obligation
to represent the Client in any other matter। The Client understands that, with respect to the Suit,
the Attorneys have no obligation to represent the Client, or secure representation for the Client, if
the facts of the case are found to be materially and significantly different than the Client has
stated to the Attorneys। Nor do the Attorneys have any obligation to represent the Client, or
secure representation for the Client, in any subsequent stage of litigation, including in appeal
from final judgment at the trial court level। If any such services are performed in the absence of a
subsequent agreement, but with their express or implied consent, the terms of this agreement
shall continue in effect।
The Attorneys pursue litigation consistent with each of their organization’s policies and
goals। It is possible, although not likely, that in the course of the lawsuit, one or more may
identify legal tactics that could be undertaken on the Client’s behalf but that would conflict with
one or more of their policies। If such a situation arises, they will promptly notify the Client and
seek the Client’s views as to the proposed course of action। If the ACLUF, NDLON, AAAJ-LA,
AAAJ-ALC and/or Sidley and the Client can agree on a course of action that does not conflict
with such a policy, the ACLUF, NDLON, AAAJ-LA, AAAJ-ALC, and/or Sidley will continue
the representation। If the Client agrees to proceed with such representation, despite such a
potential conflict, the Client shall notify the ACLUF, NDLON, AAAJ-LA, AAAJ-ALC, and
Sidley in writing that the Client has been informed about the potential conflict and agrees to
proceed with the representation according to the agreed-upon course of action। If the ACLUF,
NDLON, AAAJ-LA, AAAJ-ALC, and/or Sidley and the Client cannot agree on a course of
action, the Client understands that the ACLUF, NDLON, AAAJ-LA,
and/or Sidley will make reasonable efforts to consult regularly with the Client and to notify the
Client of significant developments in the Suit। Client agrees to keep ACLUF, NDLON, AAAJLA, AAAJ-ALC, and/or Sidley informed of any changes in Client’s location, address, or contact
information; to promptly provide any documents or information requested by ACLUF, NDLON,
AAAJ-LA, AAAJ-ALC, and/or Sidley; and to cooperate fully with ACLUF, NDLON, AAAJLA, AAAJ-ALC, and/or Sidley। The Client understands that the ACLUF, NDLON, AAAJ-LA,
AAAJ-ALC, and/or Sidley may recommend that certain claims for relief or legal theories be
abandoned if investigation and discovery disclose that such claims or theories are not, in their
judgment, likely to be successful। The ACLUF, NDLON, AAAJ-LA, AAAJ-ALC, and/or Sidley
will make reasonable efforts to inform the Client of any such developments, and the likelihood of
success in connection with these developments। The Client will not unreasonably withhold
consent to abandon claims and theories which, in their judgment, are not likely to be successful।
4। FEES, COSTS AND OTHER CHARGES: The services of the ACLUF, NDLON,
AAAJ-LA, AAAJ-ALC, and/or Sidley will be provided to the Client free of charge। The Client
understands that the ACLUF, NDLON, AAAJ-LA, AAAJ-ALC, Sidley and/or cooperating
counsel will pay out-of-pocket expenses in connection with the Suit। These litigation costs
include, but are not limited to, court fees, service of process charges, photocopy charges, notary
fees, computer assisted legal research, telephone charges, postage, messenger and delivery fees,
facsimile, deposition costs, parking, mileage, investigation expenses, consultation fees, expert
witness fees, interpreter and translation fees, and other similar items। The ACLUF, NDLON,
AAAJ-LA, AAAJ-ALC, and/or Sidley will also pay the salaries of their respective attorney(s)
assigned to the Client’s case। If litigation is successful, the court may require the opponents to
pay attorneys’ fees and expenses that have been incurred by the ACLUF, NDLON, AAAJ-LA,
AAAJ-ALC, Sidley, and/or cooperating counsel in pursuing the litigation। The court may award
these fees and costs to the Client or directly to the ACLUF, NDLON, AAAJ-LA, AAAJ-ALC,
and/or Sidley। The Client understands that the ACLUF, NDLON, and/or Sidley will endeavor to
have the court pay these fees and costs directly to them। Whether such fees and costs are paid
directly to the ACLUF, NDLON, AAAJ-LA, AAAJ-ALC, and/or Sidley or directly to the client,
the Client agrees that any such award of attorneys’ fees and/or costs (expenses) shall be the
property of the ACLUF, NDLON, AAAJ-LA, AAAJ-ALC, and/or Sidley। Client hereby assigns
their right to seek and recover attorneys’ fees in this action to the ACLUF, NDLON, AAAJ-LA,
AAAJ-ALC, and/or Sidley।
Client understands that ACLUF, NDLON, AAAJ-LA, AAAJ-ALC, and/or Sidley shall
have a lien on any funds received by Client as a result of this case for any fees or costs covered
by this agreement that are not otherwise reimbursed to ACLUF। Client understands that Client
may seek the advice of an independent lawyer of the Client’s choice with respect to such lien। By
signing this agreement, Client acknowledges that Client has received a copy of this agreement,
has had reasonable opportunity to seek advice of independent counsel, and consents to said lien।
If any litigation arising out of the Suit is not successful, and if the court rules that the case
is frivolous, unreasonable or groundless, the court may order the Client to pay the opponent’s
costs and/or attorney’s fees। In the event of such a court order, the Attorneys agree to pay the
entire amount of the opponent’s fees and costs awarded, except if the award is based upon facts
found to be substantially and materially different than the facts about the Suit that the Client had
stated to the ACLUF, NDLON, AAAJ-LA, AAAJ-ALC, and/or Sidley or otherwise based on the
Client’s conduct (e।g।, refusal to cooperate in the Suit or to follow the advice of the Attorneys)।
Conversely, if in the course of this suit, the court should award monetary sanctions against the
opposing party or opposing counsel payable either to the Client or the ACLUF, NDLON, AAAJLA, AAAJ-ALC, and/or Sidley, the Client agrees that this should not be considered part of the
Client’s recovery but shall belong to ACLUF, NDLON, AAAJ-LA, AAAJ-ALC, and/or Sidley
as additional compensation for their time and efforts।
5। SETTLEMENTS: The ACLUF, NDLON, AAAJ-LA, AAAJ-ALC, and/or Sidley is
authorized to negotiate a settlement of the Suit। The Client has the authority to approve or
disapprove of the settlement। The Client understands that, under current law, the defendants in
civil rights actions, such as any action arising out of the Suit, are permitted to offer a settlement
that includes a condition that the Client waive any statutory right to seek attorneys’ fees and
costs। The Client understands that ACLUF’s, NDLON’s। AAAJ-LA’s and AAAJ-ALC’s ability
to continue doing work depends, in part, upon the receipt of awards of attorneys’ fees in cases in
which they are successful। The Client also understands that the acceptance of settlement offers
that include a waiver of attorneys’ fees poses a threat to the ability of the ACLUF, NDLON,
AAAJ-LA, and AAAJ-ALC to provide legal services to clients in the future। The Client
understands that it is the duty of the ACLUF, NDLON, AAAJ-LA, and AAAJ-ALC to convey to
the client any settlement offer, and that it is ultimately the Client’s decision whether to accept or
reject a settlement offer, even if it includes a waiver of attorneys’ fees। Nevertheless, the Client
agrees that in the event any offer of settlement is conditioned on a waiver of the Client’s right to
seek attorneys’ fees, the Client will consult with the ACLUF, NDLON, AAAJ-LA, and AAAJALC before accepting or rejecting such an offer। The Client further agrees that in making his
decision, he or she will take into account the importance to the ACLUF, NDLON, AAAJ-LA,
and AAAJ-ALC of such court-awarded fees and costs। If a conflict arises in settlement
negotiations because of attorneys’ fees, the Client has the right to seek independent counsel।
