MAJOR FEDERAL COURT VICTORY: ADMINISTRATIVE PROCESSING COMPLETED WITHIN 45 DAYS OF FILING A COMPLAINT FOR WRIT OF MANDAMUS
by Rabindra Singh
As the Lead Counsel in Sheikh et al v. Bitter et al, 1:22-cv-02044, I am extremely happy to share that within 45 days of filing a complaint for Writ of Mandamus in the Northern District of Illinois (NDIL), the Department of State (DOS) decided to approve my client’s E-2 Nonimmigrant Visa application.
We filed a Writ of Mandamus compelling the DOS to immediately take all appropriate action to complete the Administrative Processing that had been going on since December 2019.
After sending several follow-up emails to the Consulate in Karachi, Pakistan, and making a congressional inquiry, my client was left with no choice other than filing a complaint for Writ of Mandamus.
On April 20, 2022, we filed the instant action with the NDIL compelling the Defendants and those acting under them to perform their duty to complete my client’s Administrative Processing and adjudicate his E-2 Nonimmigrant Visa application.
On June 3, 2022, the Consulate General of the United States of America in Karachi, Pakistan issued the Plaintiff’s E-2 Nonimmigrant Visa.
After waiting for more than two and half years, on June 8, 2022, my client was able to reunite with his family in the United States.
