Dean Johnson Comments for Daily Journal on Supreme Court and Trump Travel Ban

Dean Kevin R. Johnson commented for the Daily Journal on the U.S. Supreme cancellation of oral arguments in two cases concerning President Trump’s executive orders barring travel from certain Muslim-majority countries. Dean Johnson said the move made sense given the Trump administration’s recent proclamation revising the parameters of those orders.

“It isn’t altogether surprising to me that the court asked for some kind briefing on the mootness issues,” Dean Johnson said.

Kevin R. Johnson is Dean and Mabie-Apallas Professor of Public Interest Law and Chicana/o studies at UC Davis School of Law. He is an internationally recognized scholar in the fields of immigration law and policy, refugee law, and civil rights.
