Won Federal Court Action
Filed Complaint for Declaratory Relief arguing that the AAO incorrectly determined that Plaintiff had not established that it was the successor in interest of the original Petition and that Plaintiff had not established that the original Petition had the ability to pay the proffered wage in 1998.
After proper service of summons and complaint, case was administratively reopen by AAO. Depending on the defendant’s financial situation, it can be very difficult to collect a judgment. Some people do not work or have assets and are not able to pay judgments. Other defendants may have the money but refuse to pay it out of spite or for other reasons. A judgment is really just a piece of paper that serves as judicial recognition that this person owes you this amount of money. Unfortunately, just because the judge awarded you a money judgment does not mean that the defendant is immediately going to pay the amount owed. There are 94 district courts, 13 circuit courts, and one Supreme Court throughout the country. Criminal cases may not be brought under diversity jurisdiction. The district courts are the general trial courts of the federal court system. District courts handle trials within the federal court system – both civil and criminal. The districts are the same as those for the U.S. Attorneys, and the U.S. Attorney is the primary prosecutor for the federal government in his or her respective area.
