I appealed on 10/24/2014 ( I290B). Service Center: California. MTR Opened on Oct 24,14 with new receipt number. But, on Dec 18, 2014, status for my old receipt ( which was denied ) has been changed:
"On December 18, 2014, we reopened your Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker, Receipt Number XXXXXX, and mailed you a notice. Please follow the instructions in the notice. If you do not receive your reopening notice by January 17, 2015, please go to www.uscis.gov/e-request to request a copy of the notice. If you move, go to www.uscis.gov/addresschange to give us your new mailing address."
My New case has status of "Initial review" still. What does this mean? Any ideas? Why is old case updated now even after denial?
