Texas Driller Sues U.S. to Get Visa for In-House Big-Game Hunter

  • Matador argues big-game expert has ‘extraordinary ability’
  • Oil explorer fetes ‘high-valued’ partners, holders with hunts

Matador Resources Co. is suing U.S. immigration authorities to give the oil driller’s $110,00-a-year big-game hunting expert a visa.

Roy Dirk Ludick, a professional hunter and guide licensed in Zimbabwe since 2003, plays a critical role in Matador’s outreach to “high-valued partners, shareholders, and stakeholders,” the company said in a lawsuit against the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
