Is EAD valid with re-stamping of L2?

Louisville, KY |

I am on L1 B Visa in USA . My visa has expired on 2 May'13 and I-94 valid until 2015 . My spouse was in USA on L2 in Mar'13 . While he was here we applied for his EAD and got it until my I-94.
Before he could have started working here , due to some emergency he left to India .

Now to re-enter USA , he had to -re-stamp his L2 Visa( as it was expired in May'13). Can you please confirm me if he can work on same EAD or it needs to be re-applied ? FYI , he have EAD until 2015 and L2 is restamped for 5 years (till 2017).

I agree with Mr. Segal. The EAD remains valid so long as you maintain your L-1 status and your husband is in the United States in L-2 status.
