Federal Appeals Court Grants Abeyance in H-4 EAD Lawsuit, but Program Still in Jeopardy

22 Feb 2018

Yesterday, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit granted the Trump Administration’s motion to hold the lawsuit challenging the legality of the H-4 EAD program in abeyance for 90 days. This means the lawsuit will remain suspended for the next 90 days, at which point the Administration must provide the court with a status update. The purpose of the abeyance is to allow the Trump Administration more time to issue new regulations that will eliminate the H-4 EAD program, and thus make the pending lawsuit moot.
