Ok, this is a slightly complex order. We won some things, and lost some things. Overall, I am THRILLED with this result. We asked for a lot, in part knowing we would not get everything.
First, 9095 visas have been set aside for after the September deadline. The lawyers will need some time to interpret the order in some aspects of that number.
The Gomez class (everyone represented by the 7 brave plaintiffs HAS been certified. That ensures relief can be given to more than just named plaintiffs.
The Aker class certification was denied. Again, I will need time and input from the lawyers to determine what impacts that has, if any. This was about visa re-issuances. Charles is asking for evidence for re-issuances granted that says you are subject to 10014 (which should not be the case if the visa was originally issued prior to April 23).
We need to sort out how the processing will happen, and how the government interprets and implements the order. The order does NOT dictate whether to issue by case number order, or which groups will be helped. So – that will be something to sort out next. It will take some DAYS to figure that out.
Some explanation from Charles Kuck here:

Hello brit, i ve already got visa but if proclamation expand, is there any chance of re- issuances of our visas ?
October 1, 2020 at 20:31
I don’t know yet. I think not, but we will confirm that later.
October 1, 2020 at 12:24
Hi brit,I am 2020eu47k and I am plaintiff at kennedy case,If on 13 september hearing we win our mandamus,do we get priority on those 9k visas as named plaintiffs
October 1, 2020 at 20:42
I don’t know.
October 1, 2020 at 13:13
Is it true that if KCC stopped at 32k all cases up to 50k might get an interview?
October 1, 2020 at 20:44
I don’t know what you mean.
October 1, 2020 at 13:27
I just read the court order today and I understand the following. Is it similar to your understanding.
9095 Visas has been set aside by the jodge to further adjudicate the pending cases of Gomez class (Individual who have not received their Diversity immigrant visa on or before 23 April). September 30 deadline will not be applicable to them. Further it will be applicable to all of the group expect group whose Visa reissuance is required will not benefited. Note also everyone will not be benefited as we know Visa number is only 9095.
And it will be completely on the Department of State that how and when they will adjudicate the cases on what basis.
If someone have expired Diversity Visa and haven’t been reissued their Visa during September 4 to September 30 will not be able to claim the relief.

Stephane you say this if its so easy to be selected in dv2022… and within all due respect, nothing you said made any sense, we didn’t get our visas because of crisis… canceling a year wont have to do anything to cancel the whole program!
October 1, 2020 at 15:47
Getting visa after the selection is not a RIGHT, it is a PRIVILEGE. After the selection the kcc message is clear. Being selected doesnt garantee that you will get a visa. The lawers, and Brit Simon fighted hard to get some additionnal visas even after the deadline. So be thankful. You may be selected for dv2022 or never been selected again, but that’s the worse part of the life. What we suppose to do? Charles Kuck asked 30.000 visas and the Judge order about 9.000, it’s not bad. Unfortunatly after september 30, the 2020 fiscal year is over and there is nothing to do. Try the dv2022.
October 1, 2020 at 19:44
I know it doesn’t guarantee you a visa. But they haven’t worked most of the year to process 40k visas even. 9k is too low and should have been more!
October 1, 2020 at 20:52
Regardless, the suggestion to cancel DV2022 is not logical, and won’t happen.
October 1, 2020 at 14:33
I want to know how many visas were really given this year?
Are they going to process the cases based on its number order?
October 1, 2020 at 15:51
It doesnt matter how many visas they already issued. The 2020 FY is over. There is not enough time to give all the visas. About 14.000 visas were issued and +the new ordered about 9000 visas to be issued. It will be about 21.000 visas for dv2020.
October 1, 2020 at 19:46
why do you keep coming at me… I wanted to know how many visas were issued because if they process the extra 9k orderly by the case number, I might get a chance.
October 1, 2020 at 20:56
MOre than that. WE are at about 18300 right now plus 1000 for AOS cases. The 9095 will be in addition to that.
October 1, 2020 at 20:52

Hi brit kuck doesn’t talk abt the 90day inactivity, he’s saying we should act now. Did any one realise that. Brit please put light on this I guess am right. Curtis had said we should wait for 90days there will be no action but kuck says act now. Brit I call upon you please help us clarify this
October 1, 2020 at 20:58
Wait a few days at least.
October 1, 2020 at 18:15
Of course, while we can be happy about the court judgement, there are some kind of nice joy and confusion at the same time. Charles Chuck video is helpful.
Based on the data from the CEAC, the are :
Visas issued: almost 18,500.
Refused: nearly 5,000.
Ready (as of Sept 30): Almost 7,000.
Court judgement (visas to issue): 9,095 (the period of the extension is not mentioned !)
Summing up these numbers, we get roughly : 39,595 out of 55,000.
So clearly, about 15,000 DV 2020 selectees will not get any chance to be interviewed.
Case at NVC: Charles Chuck, later in the video above, asks people to call the NVC (national visa center) if your case is out there. But we remember that Brit has usually said that the case being at NVC does not mean anything. Is there any confusion there or some light needed ?
Thank you Brit, and please get me right if I am totally wrong.
October 1, 2020 at 21:01
Well, you logic is confused. You are adding up numbers for no reason.
18300 have been issued so far PLUS about 1000 AOS cases.
The 9095 will be added to that. Some of those may be for cases refused (AP) and cases marked as ready.
October 1, 2020 at 18:33
I was able to get a visa on Sept 29. After beeing refused (212 on Sept. 24th).
1. I wonder whether my visa will be counted on top of the 9k reserved visas? I mean initial 15k (gov data on Sept. 24) + those who got visa between 24- 30.09 like me + 9k.
This would be nice.
2. any ideas when the DHS will file its opinion about extenstion of PP10014? You suggest to forget about visa in passport until January or prepare?
October 1, 2020 at 21:11
1. It is not part of the 9095. You are one of 6000 visas issued between September 4 and September 30th.
October 1, 2020 at 23:56
Hello sir if 7000Ready visa include in 9095 than any chances for group 4 people.Relief more to people involved in plantiff only.Thanks
October 2, 2020 at 22:53
We are not sure how cases will be prioritized, but you should understand that many cases in ready status never process.
October 2, 2020 at 01:39
Hope you are having good rest in this weekend. Just to avoid some confusion on the following matters.
1. AILA (Gomez) which we represented by 7 peoples are we all covered?
2.Later on I am also Kennedy 3.0 case name list … does it have any impact on my case if both ?
3. 2020AF000399** document was ready got an email back in February……..

Brit, I am from Jordan, my country is open and I am ready for an interview. The embassy is literally less than 2km away from me. I can literally walk to it. I have just realized that there are not few but many many selectees can’t even make it to the embassy. Is calling the KCC and telling them all that will help me?
October 3, 2020 at 00:38
Do you think that being able to walk to the embassy means you have more priority than other cases? Look, you are going to wait like everyone else. We need the final determination that could take weeks or months. Them if KCC go in case number order you will need to be aware of that. Patience is required, and I know that will be hard for some.
October 4, 2020 at 13:23
The strange thing is that the judge did not mention the Kennedy case in the decision, whether rejected or accepted.
I am very worried ? I have a lot of hopes pinned on America now I’m shattered, I don’t know my fate in Kennedy’s lawsuit
October 5, 2020 at 21:33
It’s not strange. The Kennedy suit was introduced late, and they haven’t made the full decision for all the earlier lawsuits yet. Patience.
October 4, 2020 at 13:28
Will the Kennedy plaintiffs be the judge’s dicision priority
October 5, 2020 at 21:33
Why would that suit be the priority?
October 6, 2020 at 00:20
I heard from someone that US law gives priority to a lawsuit to named plaintiffs, is that true?
