Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Defendant's murder conviction as to one victim is affirmed where defendant was denied due process by the prosecutors' gratuitous exploitation of his prejudicial nickname, "Murder," but this conduct did not prejudice defendant due to the strength of the evidence. However, defendant's murder conviction as to another victim is reversed where the prosecutorial misconduct resulted in prejudice.
