    Depends on the case and court. A civil action in a district court would take 2 to 3 years if it goes to trial

    Any thoughts on this? I received this from USCIS yesterday morning -

    Beginning with the November 2015 Department of State (DOS) Visa Bulletin, if USCIS determines that there are more immigrant visas available for a fiscal year than there are known applicants for such visas, we will state onwww.uscis.gov/visabulletininfo that applicants may use theDates for Filing Visa Applications chart. Unless otherwise stated on our website, the Application Final Action Date chart will be used to determine when individuals may file their adjustment of status applications.

    We anticipate making this determination each month and posting the relevant chart on our website within one week of DOS’ publication of the Visa Bulletin.

    About the Visa Bulletin
    DOS publishes current immigrant visa availability information in a monthly Visa Bulletin. The Visa Bulletin indicates when statutorily limited visas are available to prospective immigrants based on their individual priority date.

    • The priority date is generally the date when the applicant’s relative or employer properly filed the immigrant visa petition on the applicant’s behalf with USCIS. If a labor certification is required to be filed with the applicant’s immigrant visa petition, then the priority date is when the labor certification application was accepted for processing by Department of Labor.
    • Availability of an immigrant visa means eligible applicants are able to take one of the final steps in the process of becoming U.S. permanent residents.
    Learn more about adjustment of status and the Visa Bulletin on our website.

    If facts are not in dispute and it is only a question of law, it could be resolved earlier 1 to 1.5 years average. Then it goes to the appeal court or circuit court. Takes about an year there. Sometimes, judges can sit over a case for up to an year before rendering a decision prolonging the total time involved

    All cases are unique. It is too early to say which way this will go. It could be resolved within a month out of court or drag in court for an year. Considering people could be facing much longer wait times and flowers and "advoccay" for the last several years has failed to do anything much at all, it isn't a bad option

    Keep in mind a large majority of cases reach a settlement

    If the defendent has less chance of winning or some secrets they want to tell in the court then settlement is possible. It is premature to say but it is not bad to be optimistic of winning the case or settlement. Even if no settlement the case could finish in 9 months but because there is no complexity it could finish much earlier

    I do not think USCIS is going to settle this.If they speed up I140 EAD rule, then Greg might settle this and save his face.Only relief we could expect is court can tell them to repay for the medicals or ask to accept those medicals whenever the dates are current. USCIS appears very stubborn about the reversal.

    I sincerely hope that the settlement would atleast be reached after the discovery phase or atleast happens in two steps - One that involves reversal of AD asap and then the discovery. Discovery of their emails (and numbers) would put their dirty linen out in the public and everyone can look at it. Who knows - if the anti immigrant lobby is so strong over at USCIS, the emails would trigger a series of discrimination lawsuits!

    :p I had suggested starting a gofundme account for this one, but I have not heard anything on that. Any update would be nice.
