Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In a 42 U.S.C. section 1981 action challenging a county's alleged plan to replace white county managers with African-Americans, denial of qualified immunity to defendants is affirmed where a reasonable official would have known that discriminating against county managers on account of their race was unlawful. However, a denial of legislative immunity to one defendant is reversed where the preparation of a budget proposal related to his legislative duties.
