Revised Travel Ban Headed to Courts of Appeals, Supreme Court?


United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit
Lewis F. Powell, Jr. United States Courthouse & Annex
Richmond, Virginia

There are two appeals in cases enjoining President Trump's executive order revised travel ban.  In Hawaii v. Trump, the Justice Department filed a notice of appeal of the Hawaii district court's preliminary injunction.  The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit will hear oral arguments in an appeal of an injunction of parts of the executive order entered by a district court in Maryland.  (Here is the court's webpage for the case.).  The court is considering en banc review of the case.  The plaintiffs in the Maryland case are two refugee groups, the International Refugee Assistance Project and HIAS, as well as individuals affected by the order. They are represented by a team of lawyers from the National Immigration Law Center and the American Civil Liberties Union.
