Any Update on De Osorio CSPA case? Has Justice Department requested Supreme Court for review on ninth circuit decision ?

Asked over 1 year ago - Dallas, TX

Today as of 25 Jan 2013 is last day for government to appeal De Osorio CSPA case. Has Justice Department requested Supreme Court for review on ninth circuit decision or not?

If it goes through and become law...Is it for all states in USA or just limit to ninth circuit area only......

Please give some general idea for the next steps....

I am not sure if it happens, how much have to wait before can start filing I -485 for AOS?

Is any other way government can hold the decision or USCIS can deny ?

Thank you all in advance...
