Factbox: The court scorebox for Trump and his challengers

(Reuters) - Since President Donald Trump took office in January 2017, he and his administration have been swamped with lawsuits attacking his conduct and policies. The administration has lost more frequently in court than its challengers, but it has also had significant wins. And, since separate lawsuits on some issues have been filed in numerous courts, the administration has sometimes won a favorable ruling from one judge, only to have the policy blocked by another. Here are the key issues on which each side has scored wins.
