Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In habeas proceedings resulting from petitioner's convictions of second-degree unintentional felony murder following a joint jury trial with two co-defendants, denial of the habeas petition is affirmed where defendant's joinder with his co-defendants for trial and the state trial court's decision not to sever his trial did not constitute an unreasonable application of clearly established federal law as determined by the Supreme Court in Zafiro.
