Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
The Supreme Court has been busy this week, disposing of cases and dispensing decisions.
The Nine followed up yesterday's decisions in CompuCredit Corp. v. Greenwood, Gonzalez v. Thaler, Minneci v. Pollard, and Smith v. Cain with three more 2012 Supreme Court opinions.

Justice Ginsburg touched on the issue in her opinion. "We do not doubt either the fallibility or the importance of eyewitness evidence generally ...
