Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
District court's dismissal of plaintiff's lawsuit against defendant for injuries sustained in a collision is reversed and remanded as neither the injunction by the district court, nor the law, requires plaintiff to dismiss her state suit, as plaintiff can maintain her preexisting state claim so long as she stays the suit during the pendency of the Shipowner's Limitation of Liability Act proceedings. The district court abused its discretion in ordering the plaintiff to dismiss her state suit as a sanction.
Appeal from the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division.
