Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Defendants' criminal contempt convictions are affirmed where: 1) the record did not indicate that the trial judge failed to consider the recusal standard under 28 U.S.C. section 455(a) in denying defendants' motion to recuse; 2) the district court's instruction to the government to prosecute defendants for criminal contempt did not indicate prejudgment of the case; and 3) a district court's statements on the evidence at sentencing may not be considered as an accurate reflection of the district court's view of the evidence during trial.
