Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Pethtel v. Ballard, 09-6075, involved a defendant's request for habeas relief from his convictions for sexual assault, filming a minor, burglary, and other various crimes, claiming that the 'anti-shuttling' provision of the Interstate Agreement on Detainers Act (IADA) was violated when he was transferred to West Virginia and then back to Ohio, before his West Virginia case was finished. In affirming the district court's denial of defendant's petition, the court held that a violation of the trial before return provision of the IADA is not cognizable on habeas review. The court further held that defendant has waived his due process claim.
