As of May 17th, USCIS will suspend biometrics requirements for certain Form I-539 applicants. This suspension will apply to certain H-4, L-2, E-1, E-2, and E-3 categories. This change was caused by a declaration submitted to the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington for the case Edkunni v. Mayorkas. Edkunni is an active class-action lawsuit filed by AILA and Wasden Banias, LLP!
The case is Edakunni v. Mayorkas, U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington, No. 2:21-cv-393.
