City and County of San Francisco v. Sessions
United States District Court for the Northern District of California
372 F. Supp. 3d 928 (2019)
California and San Francisco (plaintiffs) sought to receive an Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (the grant) from the federal government. Funds from the grant were used to support law-enforcement programs aimed at reducing drug trade and recidivism. In 2017, the United States Attorney General (defendant) imposed three new conditions on the receipt of the grant. Litigation ensued regarding the constitutionality of the 2017 conditions. In 2018, the Attorney General applied two new conditions to receiving the grant. Under the 2018 conditions, grant recipients (1) could not publicly disclose sensitive federal law-enforcement information in an attempt to harbor aliens in violations of federal law (the nondisclosure condition), and (2) had to provide information about the applicant’s laws and policies for purposes of assessing compliance with § 1373. California and San Francisco sued the Department of Justice (DOJ), challenging, among other things, the 2018 nondisclosure provision. California and San Francisco requested, in part, an injunction related to the 2018 conditions.
