    Hi Ron/Jim,

    My wife is on OPT right now. We applied for her H1 in 2013 and it got selected in Lottery, but it was denied due to absence of appropriate client letter. Can we file her H1 through current employer as cap exempt as she is already counted against the quota, but her petition was denied?

    No. She was not counted because the petition was denied.
