WASHINGTON—A federal appeals court can review the deportation case against a man who fled to the United States from Lebanon, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 7-2 on Monday. Justice Brett Kavanaugh, writing for the majority, said the court can hear appeals about deportation decisions if the individual could face persecution or torture in their country of origin. Congress passed a law blocking judicial review of deportation orders, but it did not include appeals under the UN Convention Against Torture.
