With no fanfare, the U.S. Department of Labor has dropped its controversial audit of 2,500 green card cases handled by the nation's largest immigration law firm, Fragomen, Del Rey, Bernsen & Loewy. In June, the department issued a press release to announce its audit of the firm's permanent labor certification applications based on information that the firm might be violating regulations. The firm sued the DOL in August, claiming that the audit had "inflicted massive injury" on the firm's reputation.
