We're pleased to announce that the Supreme Court agreed with us that the Temporary Restraining Order ("TRO") which resulted in the jailing of Shelley Luther was invalid, leading to its grant of her requested Writ of Habeas Corpus. The high court issued its ruling based on the lack of specificity in the TRO.
The Opinion, available here, was based on the narrowest of the various issues that we argued, which was the lack of specificity in the TRO. A TRO must state with great detail both its basis and its directives. The TRO here did not meet that criteria, and was found invalid.
This means that Shelley need not spend the other five days in jail, or pay the fine assessed.
The remainder of the case remains pending, with trial scheduled for December 14, 2021.
