Federal Appeals Court Finds DOJ Travel Ban Appeal To Be Unappealing… For The Moment

The state of the travel ban remains in flux this morning. After U.S. District Court Judge James Robart placed temporary restraining order on Trump’s executive order on Friday, the White House began fighting back. The first stage of that fight was to challenge the restraining order and seek to have a stay placed on it. Unfortunately for the President, that initial fight had to take place in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Given the history of that court it should probably come as no surprise that the request for an immediate stay was, for the moment, denied. (CNN)
A federal appeals court early Sunday morning denied the US government’s emergency request to resume President Donald Trump’s travel ban.
The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has asked for both sides to file legal briefs before the court makes its final decision after a federal judge halted the program on Friday.
What this means is that the ruling by US District Court Judge James Robart suspending the ban will remain in place — for now.
The US Justice Department filed an appeal just after midnight Sunday, asking to pause a sweeping decision from the judge that temporarily halted enforcement of several key provisions of President Trump’s executive order.
