Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
District court's denial of defendant's petition for habeas relief, claiming that the way in which the bystander venire was selected violated his constitutional right to have his jury selected from a fair cross section of the community, is affirmed as the sheriff exercised his responsibility under the Illinois bystander statute by rounding out a small portion of the venire by calling upon supervisors in government offices to furnish potential jurors.
