More good news for believers in our system of ordered liberty — in Alexandria, Virginia tonight — in Judge Brinkema’s US District (trial level) courtroom, the following very cogent 22 page opinion (and a related order) was entered, against Mr. Trump’s would-be Muslim Ban.
It is a preliminary injunction — and so now there are. . . two. Now you know. Nothing more really need be said, though I think 45 is likely to appeal.
This is an early Valentine’s present to all who believe in our First Amendment’s Free Exercise Clause. In view of this opinion, Mr. Trump’s appeals won’t ultimately matter — his whole initiative here. . . is now a dead letter.
