AG Barr joins renewed Trump administration push to curtail nationwide injunctions

Reuters | May 23, 2019

At a speech Tuesday night to the elite American Law Institute, Attorney General William Barr jumped with both feet into the Trump administration’s campaign against nationwide injunctions. The AG told ALI members that federal trial judges have 37 injunctions blocking Trump administration policies across jurisdictions beyond their courtrooms – 10 more than the 27 nationwide injunctions issued in all of the 20th century. Barr said trial judges’ unprecedented show of force is nothing less than a usurpation of the prerogatives of the executive branch and an erosion of the geographical limits Congress set on the jurisdiction of lower courts – in short, a deeply unsettling violation of the bedrock constitutional principle of separation of powers.
