- Many firms are simply reluctant to sue the federal government. As our record clearly shows, we have no such reluctance.
- Some people, including attorneys, seem to be under the impression that one cannot sue the State Department for improper delays in adjudicating cases abroad. This is incorrect. The State Department does have a good amount of leeway in terms of the amount of time it needs to process cases, as well as discretionary decisions it makes - but it still has a legal obligation to move forward and not unnecessarily delay the processing of applications. We just brought a case against a consulate that had been pending for over 6 years. Due to our mandamus action, the case was adjudicated within 6 weeks.
How long have you been waiting for your case to be adjudicated?
