Dear Editor:
Does anyone remember (about 25 years ago) when Labor cases were done almost like what PERM will be, it if ever gets here; you advertised (but not through the Labor Dept) 3 small ads posted signs etc. If the Labor Dept. doubted that you had made a real effort to find a US worker they made you advertise under their direction. So, is that what, basically, they are going back to now? It sounds like it, or close to it. I'm not sure what my point is, maybe everything old is new again.

Editor's Note: Our comments referred to the period in the late 1960s and the early and mid-1970s when it was common for immigration attorneys to obtain labor certifications through the federal courts. At that time, the labor certification regulations were codified at 29 CFR. It was only after the codification of the labor cert regulations at 20 CFR that federal court litigation went out of style in labor cert practice. A forthcoming article by Gary Endelman will examine this issue in detail, Mr. Endelman will also discuss this issue in our phone seminar on Thursday, October 21st.
