Success at the Federal Court – Court follows Wang and determines trivia questions are not an appropriate means of testing religious identity

Immigration and Refugee lawyers at Levine Associates have won another Federal Court case which follows in the footsteps of Wang v. M.C.I. which found that questioning claimants by “way of trivia” is not a fair way to assess religious identity.  Shelley Levine argued the case of Wang v. M.C.I. which was prominently reported in the news media.  This further victory at the Federal Court solidifies the earlier ruling and once again makes it clear that IRB Board members who grill claimants with what amount to a trivia test are employing an unfair means of assessing religious identity.
