Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In a habeas petition seeking release from involuntary confinement in a psychiatric hospital, the denial of the petition is affirmed where the involuntary commitment standard in Kansas v. Crane, 534 U.S. 407 (2002), applies to insanity acquittees, but the New York courts did not unreasonably conclude that petitioner's continued involuntary confinement met the requirements of the due process clause.
