Eurydice Dixon's killer Jaymes Todd jailed for life for her rape and murder

Eurydice Dixon's killer Jaymes Todd jailed for life for her rape and murder Jaymes Todd is ordered to serve a minimum of 35 years in prison for raping and murdering the 22-year-old comedian in a Melbourne park last year, with the sentencing judge saying the 20-year-old has "very limited" prospects of rehabilitation. He said he was satisfied Todd had intended to kill Ms Dixon. "You waited until Eurydice was well into the dark reaches of Princes Park [before attacking her]," he said. The court heard Todd turned himself in to police after a friend saw him on police-issued CCTV but gave detectives three different versions of what happened that night during interviews.

The Supreme Court on Wednesday said the Trump administration can enforce a strict new restriction against asylum seekers who arrive at the southern border, lifting a lower court 's block on the policy. In July, the administration said it would only consider asylum requests from migrants who sought

The Supreme Court 's order was not a final ruling on the policy's merits but does allow the policy to take effect nationwide, including in the 9th Circuit, while President Trump tweeted that the ruling was a "BIG United States Supreme Court WIN for the Border on Asylum !" The administration had argued

In a major win for the Trump administration, the Supreme Court issued an order late Wednesday ending a nationwide injunction that had blocked the White House's ban on asylum for anyone trying to cross the U.S.-Mexico border by transiting through a third country.

The order was not a final ruling on the merits, but allowed the policy to proceed while lower courts in the 9th Circuit address the case.

Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg dissented.

London court rejects challenge to PM Johnson's suspension of parliament

London court rejects challenge to PM Johnson's suspension of parliament London court rejects challenge to PM Johnson's suspension of parliament before Brexit, but said it could be taken to the Supreme Court for an appeal, the BBC said. Johnson announced at the end of August that he would suspend parliament from mid-September to mid-October, just before Britain is due to leave the European Union on Oct. 31, so the government could announce a new legislative programme. That prompted campaigner Gina Miller, who defeated the government over another Brexit issue two years ago, to challenge the order.

In a major win for the Trump administration, the Supreme Court issued an order late Wednesday ending all injunctions that had blocked the White House's The Supreme Court 's order was not a final ruling on the merits, but it at least temporarily ends the injunctions everywhere, and allow the policy to

"Once again the Executive Branch has issued a rule that seeks to upend longstanding practices regarding refugees who seek shelter from persecution," Sotomayor and Ginsburg wrote.

On Monday, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals – long a liberal bastion that has been aggressively reshaped into a more moderate court by the Trump administration – handed the president a major win in the case by ruling that the nationwide injunction should be lifted.

The government also asked the Supreme Court to intervene on an emergency basis to settle the matter.

TRUMP ADMIN ANNOUNCES MAJOR CRACKDOWN ON ASYLUM SEEKERS, CITING WIDESPREAD FRAUD

Earlier on Monday, Obama-appointed U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar in California had reinstated a nationwide halt on the Trump administration's plan to prevent most migrants from seeking asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border, if they first crossed through another country on the way.

But in an administrative order first obtained by Politico, the 9th Circuit rolled Tigar's ruling right back, saying that for now it should only apply to the confines of the 9th Circuit — which encompasses California, Arizona, Alaska, Hawaii, Montana, Nevada, Idaho, Guam, Oregon and Washington.

Tigar first blocked the asylum policy in July after a lawsuit by groups that help asylum seekers. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals then partially limited the impact of Tigar's injunction.

Picket held at hotel site earmarked for asylum seekers

Picket held at hotel site earmarked for asylum seekers A 24-hour picket is being maintained at a former hotel in Connemara in protest over its possible conversion into accommodation for asylum seekers. The protest, by residents of Oughterard, Co Galway, was mounted after a silent march by about 1,500 people in the town at the weekend to highlight opposition to "inhumane direct provision". Oughterard publican Rory Clancy said a "presence" would be maintained on a 24-hour basis to register the community's opposition to a new direct provision centre.

A federal appeals court handed the Trump administration a partial win Friday by allowing its asylum restrictions to take effect in Texas and New Mexico.

The US Supreme Court has cleared the way for President Donald Trump ’s new asylum rules to take effect , suspending a pair of injunctions The court announced on Wednesday evening it would allow the enforcement of the new rules, pending government appeal of two decisions in the 9th Circuit Court .

In his now-overturned ruling Monday, Tigar circled back, and stressed a "need to maintain uniform immigration policy" and found that nonprofit organizations such as Al Otro Lado don't know where asylum seekers who enter the U.S. will end up living and making their case to remain in the country. Tiger, citing new evidence, on Monday issued a second nationwide injunction.

The Trump administration has reason for optimism now that the case is back in the 9th Circuit. The San Francisco-based appellate court has seven Trump-appointed federal judges — more than any other federal appellate bench. The radical transformation of the court, which has 29 seats, is largely the result of Trump's push to nominate conservative judges and bypass traditional consultations with Senate Democrats.

Thirteen of the 29 seats are now occupied by GOP-appointed judges. Last year, that number stood at six.

"Thanks to Trump, the liberal 9th Circuit is no longer liberal," The Washington Post noted earlier this year.
