Attorney Fees Awarded In An Action Against The Government

Alexander J. Segal's picture

In a recent decision, the U.S. District Court out of Washington State has awarded attorney fees in an action against USCIS in a stalled I-610 waiver application. The court concluded USCIS and also the US DOS for that matter, both acted in bad faith when they failed to engage in good faith negotiations in the matter of a stalled waiver application and thus cased needless delays and violated the integrity of the judicial process.
