Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Dismissal of defendant's petition for unconditional release after he had been recommitted as a Sexually Violent Predator (SVP) is affirmed where: 1) the trial court did not abuse its discretion in dismissing the petition where defendant did not oppose the dismissal motion and conceded there were no changed circumstances at the hearing; and 2) trial counsel provided effective assistance of counsel in not opposing the motion to dismiss where there were no changed circumstances to support a conclusion that defendant's condition had so changed he would not be a danger to others.
