I’m happy to report that we’ve gotten another positive result in a consular denial lawsuit.
An unjust consular denial is not the final word if there’s a US citizen spouse or minor child involved. This is especially so if the lawsuit can be brought somewhere in the Ninth Circuit (most of the Western US) relying a decision from the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit — Munoz v. U.S. Dep’t of State, No. 21-55365 (9th Cir. Oct. 5, 2022).
These types of lawsuits are certainly more complex and labor intensive than litigating a USCIS denial. But they are winnable. Don’t lose hope.
