Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In a dispute involving attorney's fees, district court judgment is affirmed where the district court properly denied the plaintiffs' request for attorneys' fees under the applicable federal fee-shifting statutes, as the parties' settlement agreement did not require the court's approval, incorporation in a court order, or retention of jurisdiction for future oversight and enforcement and thus lacked the necessary judicial imprimatur to confer upon the plaintiffs prevailing party status.
