The petitions claim that adjudication delays caused by FBI backlogs and alleged mishandling of the security check process violate the Administrative Procedure Act and the Fifth Amendment Due Process Clause of the U.S. Constitution. In addition, some judges have threatened to use their authority to adjudicate applications or petitions.
To address the delays, in September 2007 the FBI and USCIS entered into an agreement to filter out certain FBI case files in an effort to decrease the volume of files reviewed for USCIS name checks and to speed up the name check process."
Lets now see how the implementation goes through..
