Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In a 42 U.S.C. section 1983 action based on plaintiff's detention at a hospital based on a finding by hospital staff that there was reasonable cause to believe she suffered from a mental illness rendering her dangerous to herself or others, dismissal of the action based on the Rooker-Feldman doctrine is vacated and remanded where Rooker-Feldman is inapplicable as the suit challenges decisions made by hospital personnel which were not compelled by a family court order.
