Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In an action alleging detainee abuse by private military contractors that provided services to the U.S. government at the Abu Ghraib military prison during the war in Iraq, denial of summary judgment to one defendant is reversed where plaintiffs' tort claims were preempted under the military contractor immunity doctrine. Judgment for the other defendant is affirmed on the same grounds.
