Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
District court's denial of defendant' 28 U.S.C.A. section 2255 motion is affirmed as, decisions involving mistrials - whether to seek a mistrial or accept a mistrial offered by the trial court - are tactical decisions left to the sound judgment of counsel, and the decision remains counsel's to make even if the client expresses disagreement with the decision, and counsel's decision is not unreasonable simply because the client disagrees.
