Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Conviction of defendant for assault with a deadly weapon is affirmed where: 1) defendant's proposed instruction based on CALCRIM No. 3471 was irrelevant to the jury's consideration of whether defendant acted in reasonable self-defense; and 2) because CALCRIM No. 3471 concerns the preliminary factual question of whether a defendant has the right to act in self-defense, the trial court's unqualified instruction on reasonable self-defense rendered that instruction unnecessary.
