"On October 5, 2004 in Akhtar v. Burzynski. No. 02-57037, the Ninth Circuit invalidated the age-out provisions of 8 C.P.R. 214. 15(g) and remanded the action to the District Court for further proceedings. While the decision would only apply to cases filed by applicants in the Ninth Circuit, CIS [Citizenship and Immigration Services] will apply the decision nation-wide immediately. A regulatory solution is in the making; however, effective immediately, the following guidance is provided for adjudication of Form 1-539 filed for V-2 and V- 3 extension."
