Xterra Solutions filed the lawsuit as they claim that the denial of visa to Anisetty was "arbitrary" and "capricious" since, they claim, Anisetty's appointment as Business Systems Analyst qualified all four criteria for an H-1B speciality occupation.

Currently, the H-1B visa has an annual numerical limit cap of 65,000 visas each fiscal year (excluding the first 20,000 petitions filed on behalf of beneficiaries with a masters degree), however, tech companies have been pushing to raise it to 85,000.
