Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In plaintiff's negligence suit against Wal-Mart for selling bullets to his wife without asking her for the identification card required by Illinois law (she later committed suicide), dismissal of the complaint is affirmed as Illinois law continues to deem suicide an independent intervening event that breaks the chain of causation, even after an illicit gun sale.
