USCIS, a case challenging the January 8, 2010, Neufeld employer-employee/third-party placement memo. The court concluded that the Memorandum does not constitute final agency action subject to judicial review and the notice and comment requirements under the APA. The court concluded that the Memorandum establishes interpretive guidelines for the implementation of 8 C.F.R. § 214.2 and does not bind USCIS adjudicators in their determination of plaintiff’s H-1B visa applications.
