Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
A conviction for the kidnapping of a woman and her young son resulting in their deaths is affirmed where: 1) there was no abuse of discretion in the district court's denial of defendant's motion to strike a juror for cause; 2) the admission of three items of evidence over hearsay objections was proper; 3) the federal kidnapping statute is not unconstitutionally vague nor overbroad; and 4) the life imprisonment sentence was not unconstitutionally disproportionate under the circumstances.
