"Outstanding" EB-1 Victory in Nebraska: Scripps College v. Jaddou

December 13, 2023 (1 min read)

Scripps College v. Jaddou

"At issue is whether the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) properly denied Plaintiff’s I-140 immigration petition by finding the beneficiary of the petition did not qualify for an employment-based first-preference visa as an “outstanding professor or researcher” pursuant to 8 U.S.C. § 1153(b)(1)(B). ... Scripps argues that the USCIS’s denial of its I-140 petition must be reversed because it made internally inconsistent findings, imposed novel evidentiary requirements, disregarded relevant factors, and is not supported by substantial evidence. ... As explained below, the Court concludes that USCIS’s decision was arbitrary and capricious, an abuse of discretion, and contrary to the law; therefore, the Court grants Scripps’s motion for summary judgment and denies USCIS’s motion for summary judgment."
