Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In plaintiff's 42 U.S.C. section 1983 suit against a county Treasurer and staff, following the acquittal of her criminal prosecution for allegedly making threats against a public official, judgment of the district court in rejecting the federal-law theories and resolving the state-law theories in favor of the defendants is vacated and remanded with instructions to dismiss for lack of subject matter jurisdiction as, prior decision inescapably render plaintiff's federal theories frivolous and a veneer of constitutional phraseology on top of a state tort claim cannot justify its adjudication in federal court.
