The Supreme Court today declined to take up appeals on three social justice issues:
- Gun law restrictions
- California’s sanctuary policy
- Police immunity
The justices also declined to take up a form of immunity that has shielded police officers from lawsuits alleging excessive force and other civil rights violations. A wide range of academics and civil rights groups on the left and right had called for the court’s intervention….
The court also let stand California’s sanctuary law that forbids local law enforcement in most cases from cooperating with aggressive federal action to identify and deport undocumented immigrants. The law passed after Trump took office and was challenged by his administration.
