Court Denies TRO in Revised October Visa Bulletin lawsuit

October 9, 2015

In the context of revised October 2015 visa bulletin that the State Dept. issued after retracting the visa bulletin issued earlier in September, there was tremendous amount of anxiety, frustration, and anger among several thousands of immigrants waiting to file the adjustment applications.  A class action lawsuit was filed to have a temporary restraining order (TRO) on the State’s Dept. regarding the revision to the visa bulletin.

However, the court where the class action lawsuit was filed issued an order denying the motion for temporary restraining order, stating “While the Court appreciates the confusion caused by the two Visa Bulletins published in September and the potentially wasted expenses Plaintiffs incurred as a result, because Plaintiffs fail to meet the critical elements for a temporary restraining order at this time, the Court cannot issue injunctive relief.”
