Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In an appeal from a denial of defendant's motion to correct his sentence as untimely, the order is affirmed where: 1) the district court properly determined that defendant's judgment of conviction became final upon the Supreme Court's denial of certiorari; and 2) extraordinary circumstances justifying equitable tolling did not include defendant's lawyer's miscalculation of a limitation period.
