My U.S. citizen brother sponsored me for a green card about 10 years ago. That case is still a long way from becoming current. Can I transfer that priority date to my I-140, which was just approved?


No, unfortunately, it normally is not possible to transfer a family-based priority date to an employment-based case (or vice versa). (01.Sep.2022)
