Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
District court's denial of plaintiff's petition for habeas corpus in a murder case is affirmed where the court properly held that the claims plaintiff raised in her habeas petition were procedurally defaulted as the petition did not raise any of the three theories of ineffective assistance of counsel she presented to the state appellate court and thus could not be asserted on appeal.
