Previously, a lawsuit was brought against the Trump administration by the Sierra Club. The suit contended that the construction of Donald Trump’s border wall was illegal.
Eventually, the case made it all the way to the Supreme Court.
In the beginning of October, the Supreme Court made the decision to send the case back to the lower courts.
The reason? The judges that escalated the case need to “consider what further proceedings are necessary and appropriate in light of the changed circumstances.”
What changed circumstances, you may ask?
Well, Biden already halted construction of the border wall.
Here’s an excerpt from the Supreme Court’s order:
The petition for a writ of certiorari is granted. The judgment is vacated, and the case is remanded to the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit with instructions to direct the District Court to vacate its judgments. The District Court should consider what further proceedings are necessary and appropriate in light of the changed circumstances in this case.
