Hearing delayed for Quaids’ Canadian refugee claim

- Associated Press - Monday, November 8, 2010

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA (AP) - An immigration hearing to evaluate actor Randy Quaid's request for refugee status in Canada has been postponed.

Quaid's lawyer, Catherine Sas, told the immigration adjudicator Monday that she needed more time to go through documents. The case was moved to Nov. 23.

Quaid and his wife were arrested in Vancouver, British Columbia, last month on outstanding U.S. warrants related to vandalism charges. The Quaids are wanted in Santa Barbara, California, where they missed a court hearing last week on felony vandalism charges.

The Quaids requested refugee status based on their belief that they were being persecuted by "Hollywood star whackers" and that their lives were in danger.
