Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In a Due Process and Equal Protection Clause challenge to New York's felon disenfranchisement laws, judgment on the pleadings for defendants is affirmed where: 1) plaintiffs' amended complaint failed to allege any facts as to discriminatory intent behind the legislature's adoption of the state constitutional provision at issue; and 2) there was a rational basis for the statutes' distinction between felons sentenced to incarceration or serving parole and those sentenced to probation.
