U.S. Supreme Court opinions: June 1 Tuesday, June 1, 2021

In Garland v. Ming Dai the court held that the Ninth Circuit’s rule in immigration disputes - that in the absence of an explicit adverse credibility determination by an immigration judge or the Board of Immigration Appeals, a reviewing court must treat a petitioning noncitizen’s testimony as credible and true - cannot be reconciled with the terms of the Immigration and Nationality Act.

In United States v. Cooley the court held that a tribal police officer has authority to detain temporarily and to search a non-Indian traveling on a public right-of-way running through a reservation for potential violations of state or federal law.
