Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In a 42 U.S.C. section 1983 action alleging excessive force by police, judgment for defendant-officer is affirmed where, because the jury unanimously found that defendant was entitled to qualified immunity and there was no flaw in the finding that required the district court to reject it, the district court acted within its discretion in entering judgment for defendant and denying plaintiff's motion for a new trial.
