CASE ENTRY

Flores v. Barr

Pursuant to a 1997 settlement agreement, Border Patrol must ensure “safe and sanitary” conditions for detained minors. Does that mean minors must have access to soap, towels, showers, dry clothing, and toothbrushes even though the agreement doesn’t expressly mention them? District court: Yes. Yes, it does. Ninth Circuit: Because the district court is enforcing, rather than modifying, the 1997 agreement, we don’t have jurisdiction to reconsider its order.
