Thank you for your interest in being added to our litigation regarding the delay in approving Optional Practical Training for F-1 students. We are including in the litigation individuals who have been waiting at least 30 days for a filing receipt or at least 90 days for OPT approval. This case is being co-counseled by the Immpact Litigation group of law firms – Siskind Susser, our firm, and our partner firms Kuck Baxter and Joseph & Hall.
THE DEADLINE FOR JOINING THE CASE IS FEBRUARY 22nd.
If you are interested in participating please do the following:
STEP 1 – Download the FAQ and make sure you understand what the case is about, how the $1000 plaintiff fee works, and what we hope to accomplish and who is likely to benefit from the case and who is not. The document is here.
STEP 2 – Complete our engagement letter generator app here. It will allow you to download the engagement letter for your records at the end and automatically send the signed agreement to us.
STEP 3 – Make your $1000 plaintiff fee payment online at https://www.immigrationissues.com/payment-federal-litigation/.
STEP 4 – Create a declaration describing your situation and why you’re suing. You can create this using our OPT Litigation Declaration Builder app here.
We will NOT be sending you an email confirming we have your documents for a few days so please give us a week to send you an email confirming you are in the case and if we still need anything. Note that if you get emails with your engagement letter and your declaration, it means we have them as well.
Once you have done these things, we’ll review and make sure you’re eligible for the case. We’ll let you know if there is a problem, but if you hear nothing from us, assume you’re okay. We’ll send out a notification to the plaintiffs once we file.
Please do NOT tell USCIS you are a plaintiff in our litigation until we specifically tell you that is okay.
We hope to file the amendment in a few weeks and will close out accepting plaintiffs on February 22nd.
We are looking forward to fighting to get you your OPT approvals.
