Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In defendant Republic of Argentina's appeal from the district court's orders of attachment and execution entered in late 2008 over Argentine social security funds, the order is reversed where: 1) nonparty Argentine social security administration was clearly affected by the order and thus had standing to appeal; and 2) the funds were not subject to attachment because they were not being used for a commercial activity in the United States as of the effective date of the Argentine legislation transferring the funds to the control of the administration.
