Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
District court judgment denying plaintiff's request for preliminary injunctive relief is affirmed where: 1) plaintiff's appeal from the court's denial of the first request for a preliminary injunction is moot as there is no live controversy to adjudicate with respect to the first request; 2) plaintiff failed to make the requisite showing of irreparable injury in his second motion for injunctive relief, as he did not demonstrate the prospect of future harm or that the suspension of his license inflicted a serious continuing reputational injury.
