Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In a 42 U.S.C. section 1983 action seeking to enjoin Alabama's lethal injection method of capital punishment, dismissal of the complaint is affirmed where plaintiff unreasonably delayed in filing the action because he knew, or should have known, when the suit was filed that an execution date would likely be set and come before the case could be litigated fully, unless a stay of execution was granted or the litigation was expedited.
