Is California really ‘winning’ in court against the Trump administration?

Sep 26, 2019

Democratic-controlled California has been labeled the "State of Resistance," in large part for challenging the Trump administration in federal court on issues ranging from the environment to immigration to the U.S. census. 

As of late September, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra had filed or joined 60 lawsuits against the Trump administration. His office has also filed friend of the court briefs in several additional cases against the administration. 

But is California really "winning" in court as Becerra and Gov. Gavin Newsom have confidently claimed?
