Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Defendants' murder and firearm use convictions are affirmed where 1) it was the government's evidence -- not any perceived conflict between defendants' defense theories -- that was the basis for the jury's verdicts, and thus the district court did not abuse its discretion by declining to sever defendants' trials; 2) given the multiple purposes of defendants' separate acts at different times and locations, the district court did not err in refusing to dismiss certain counts of the indictment; and 3) 18 U.S.C. section 245 was a valid exercise of Congress's power under the Thirteenth Amendment.
