Randy Quaid's Canadian Refugee Hearing Postponed Again

Refugee claim hearing is delayed after immigration judge assigned to Quaid's case falls ill.

American actor Randy Quaid's Canadian refugee board hearing has been postponed yet again, this time due to the illness of an immigration judge.

Quaid was making his fourth appearance Wednesday morning in Vancouver before the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada to judge his eligibility to remain in the country.

The hearing was delayed after a refugee board member assigned to hear Quaid's refugee claim fell ill on Monday afternoon, the Canadian immigration panel said in a statement.

No new date for Quaid's admissibility hearing has been set.

The actor and his wife, Evi Quaid, are attempting to stay in Canada and avoid a return to California where they face outstanding warrants for their arrest on vandalism charges.

Evi Quaid has been given permission to remain in Canada because her father was born here.

Randy Quaid faces long odds on securing asylum here as the Immigration and Refugee Board each year grants only a handful of refugee claims by Americans.
