Travel Ban Dealt Another Blow By Federal Court

Late last night, the same federal judge in Hawaii who issued a temporary restraining order (TRO) that blocked the Trump Administration’s March 6, 2017 travel ban from taking effect, agreed to convert the TRO into a preliminary injunction. A preliminary injunction is similar to the TRO, but while a TRO typically must expire within a matter of days or weeks, a preliminary injunction can remain binding for an extended period of time. In practice, unless this ruling is reversed, the March 6th executive order likely will never go into effect.
