Villada Garibay v. U.S. State Department

Adjustment Applicant Unjustly Denied Visa by U.S. State Department

Villada Garibay, et al. v. U.S. State Dept., et al.

Briefs, Memos, and Orders Filed with/Issued by the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California (from latest to earliest):

  • Complaint for Declaratory Relief (filed 4/10/18, PDF). “Mr. Villada Garibay and Mr. Serrato file this action, seeking a declaration that the reasons for Defendants’ refusal to issue the visa and admit Mr. Villada Garibay are not facially legitimate nor bona fide nor legally correct. Mr. Villada Garibay did not accrue ‘unlawful presence’ when he was a minor, and he was ‘admitted’ when he returned to the United States in 2000. Alternatively, Mr. Villada Garibay seeks a declaration that the notice of approval provided him with inadequate notice of the risk of another ground of inadmissibility. He therefore is eligible for LPR status and lawfully entitled to return to the United States.”
