Scialabba v. de Osorio, 573 U.S. 41 (2014), was a United States Supreme Court case in which the court found that lawful residents in the United States who turned twenty-one while their visa applications were being processed could not retain their original application date after "aging out" of eligibility for child-visas. Those "aged out" were moved to the bottom of the list of applicants for adult visas.[1][2] The Ninth Circuit Court had originally agreed that provisions in the Child Status Protection Act allowed applicants to retain their date.
