News Release from Jewell Stewart & Pratt – February 8, 2017

The United States District Court for the Western District of Washington’s temporary restraining order, prohibiting the federal government from enforcing the travel ban in Executive Order 13769 of January 27, 2017 on a nationwide basis, is still in place.

The White House’s motion for a stay of the District Court’s decision to lift the travel ban, before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, is expected to be ruled on this week. In the meantime, all U.S. land and air ports of entry are prohibited from enforcing the Executive Order until further orders from the court.
