A prominent Vermont lawyer, in an effort to try to get his new wife a chance to live with him permanently at their Stowe home, has filed a federal lawsuit against top national figures, including U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland and Secretary of State Antony Blinken.
Jon R. Eggleston and his new wife Julie Ciarallo also have named Alejandro Mayorkas, the secretary of U.S. Homeland Security and Ana Escrogima, counsel general in Montreal, as defendants in the case filed in U.S. District Court in Burlington.
The lawsuit seeks to have the defendants issue a long-delayed Immigrant Visa to Ciarallo, who married Eggleston on Valentine’s Day 2020.
