29 Months OPT Challenge - Turned Down

Friday, August 8, 2008

Programmers Guild in a lawsuit had alleged the 29 Month OPT ruling will experience further job displacement, denials of job opportunities, wage depression and increase[d] job competition. U.S. district court judge in New Jersey this week rejected an injunction attempt by H-1B visa opponents to halt the Bush administration's extension of student visas from one year to 29 months.

The Judge wrote,
Instead of alleging concrete injury, plaintiffs assert a generalized grievance with a particular government policy
The final decision on the case will be delivered on the 14th of Nov [ whether it should be dismissed for lack of standing] All the International Students in the US who have graduated this summer may have a breather as long as you are in STEM - Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics domain.
