View from 309th District Court in Harris County this morning.
Judge Leonie M. Brinkema has delivered a new loss to the Trump Administration with the granting of a preliminary injunction of the controversial executive order. Judge Brinkema found a high likelihood of prevailing in the challenge. What is notable about this decision is that the court found such a likelihood on the violation of the First Amendment’s religious freedom protections. In a curious way, this could be a welcomed opportunity for the Administration. This would be a better case to appeal to the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. While I have great respect for Judge Brinkema, I believe that the court’s analysis would be ripe to an appellate challenge and that her reliance on such things as Trump’s campaign statements create a particular vulnerability in the opinion.
