Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
District court's dismissal of plaintiffs' preenforcement challenge to a state criminal statute for lack of standing is affirmed where: 1) plaintiffs failed to meet their Article III burden of proving that their First Amendment rights were chilled based on a subjective and sincere belief that under the statute they would be criminally charged for making truthful claims of police misconduct; and 2) the court did not abuse its discretion in dismissing the claim of the one plaintiff with standing based on the Younger doctrine.
