Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In an appeal from a Massachusetts district court's order modifying a protective order issued by a Maryland District Court to allow disclosure of a nonparty witness's identity, the order is affirmed where: 1) the Massachusetts court did not enter any order intending to control the authority of the Maryland court to manage discovery and the litigation; and 2) the witness's speech at issue was commercial speech and subject to a substantial governmental interest in disclosure.
