Trump appeals judge's ruling on young immigrants
Alsup's court is the District Court for the Northern District of California. Appeals of decisions by that court are commonly handled by the 9th U.S.

The trial will have 12 jurors and four alternates who will hear testimony about the events of December 1, 2016, when Gasser shot former National Football League running back Joe McKnight as McKnight stood at the passenger-side window of Gasser's Infiniti sedan while the two argued at a Terrytown intersection.

Jury selection is moving along very slowly, and the process to pick 12 people is expected to take days - maybe even longer.

The two had been driving in their vehicles on the Crescent City Connection when police say McKnight cut Gasser off in traffic and an argument ensued. They noted that Gasser stayed on the scene after the shooting and said he cooperated with police. If convicted under the charge, Gasser would face a mandatory life sentence.
