"Anil Rijal appeals the district court’s grant of summary judgment in favor of the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, affirming the denial of his petition for an immigration visa preference as an alien of “extraordinary ability” pursuant to 8 U.S.C. § 1153(b)(1)(A). We adopt as our own the well-reasoned published opinion of the district court, Rijal v. United States Citizenship & Immigration Servs., 772 F.Supp. 2d 1339 (W.D. Wash. 2011)." - Rijal v. USCIS, June 13, 2012.
"There is no dispute that Mr. Rijal has achieved substantial success over
nearly three decades of work in the television and film industry. To be
an "alien of extraordinary ability," however, there is also no dispute
that merely achieving success is insufficient." - Rijal v. USCIS, 772 F.Supp. 2d 1339 (W.D. Wash. 2011)
