Court Strikes Down Trump H-1B Lottery Rule; Wolf Not Lawfully Appointed

Chamber of Commerce v. DHS, Sept. 15, 2021

"DHS confirmed at the hearing that Secretary Mayorkas has not ratified the Final Rule.
Because Mr. Wolf was not lawfully appointed as Acting Secretary at the time the Final Rule was
approved, the Court concludes the rule must be set aside. In light of this ruling, the Court does not
reach Plaintiffs’ alternative arguments. Accordingly, the Court vacates the Final Rule and
remands this matter to DHS."
