The Fifth Circuit on Thursday (May 19,2016) upheld a district court’s finding that a Border Patrol agent who fatally shot an unarmed 18-year-old U.S. citizen in the back while he was running away was entitled to qualified immunity, saying the officer’s use of deadly force was objectively reasonable in the circumstances. 

Monday May 23, 2016 marks the 68th day since Judge Merrick Garland was nominated to the U.S. Supreme Court, drawing him equal with the average time to confirmation for recent high court nominees.  The White House on Friday again urged senators to consider the judge’s nomination.
