Browse: 9772       Date: 06-10-2016     

A class action lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Oregon against USCIS alleges that the randomized lottery system used to select a limited number of H-1B petitions for processing is “arbitrary and capricious,” and asks the court to hold unlawful and set aside USCIS’s regulations requiring H-1B petitions to be filed during a five-day filing window and subjected to a random lottery in which losing lottery filings are rejected and not assigned a priority date, among other things. (Tenrec, Inc. et al. v. USCIS, 6/2/16)
