A little over a year ago, we filed a complaint in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, on behalf of a client whose H-1B nonimmigrant petition was denied. USCIS denied the petition on the grounds that a Computer Systems Analyst was not a specialty occupation.
We disagreed, so we took it to court. On March 31, 2020, Judge Contreras agreed with us. He ruled that a Computer Systems Analyst is indeed a specialty occupation as per the Occupational Outlook Handbook (“OOH”).
