Federal Court Nixes Rule That Would Have Significantly Altered H1B Lottery Process

A federal district court has set aside a final rule that would have replaced the H1B lottery registration system with one that prioritizes cases filed based on wage level. The rule had been finalized by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) in the final weeks of the Trump Administration, but was never implemented. More details about the vacated rule are available in the MurthyDotCom NewsBrief, USCIS Publishes Final Rule to Significantly Alter H1B Lottery Process (08.Jan.2021).
