I Assume A Redacted Settlement Agreement Will Be Available By Mid-Week Next Week…
September 2, 2017

As expected, the trial court level New York federal settlement in Darweesh, et al. v. Trump, 1:17-cv-00480-CBA-LB (NY ED) was filed in open court at the end of the week.

It seems likely that it may name individual names — of plaintiffs who sought redress, from their earlier denial of entry — under 45’s Muslim Bans 1.0, and 2.0. Which means the public is, at present, not permitted to view the actual as signed settlement — in full.

In short order, the press will file a simple motion to have a redacted for names version made public. If they don’t — I will. There can scarcely be a more important matter of public interest and concern than closely monitoring 45’s attempts to abridge the free exercise clause of Amendment One. And the free press clause of that same amendment gives us all the nearly plenary right to the records of our court proceedings, at the federal level. So stay tuned into next week: we will post it then, as redacted.

. . . .SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT , Signed by All Parties, by John Kelly, Jamea T. Madden, Kevin K. McAleenan, Donald J Trump, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (“CBP”), U.S. Department of Homeland Security (“DHS”) (Attachments: # (1) Settlement Agreement) (Platt, Steven). . . .

Onward. And, approp of Labor Day — and Hamilton: “Immigrants, we get the job done!”
