U.S. appeals to higher court over ruling against Trump's revised travel ban


The U.S. government took the legal battle over President Donald Trump's travel ban to a higher court on Friday, saying it would appeal against a federal judge's decision that struck down parts of the ban on the day it was set to go into effect.

The Department of Justice said in a court filing it would appeal against a ruling by U.S. District Judge Theodore Chuang in Maryland to the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Virginia.

On Thursday, Chuang issued an emergency halt to the portion of Trump's March 6 executive order temporarily banning the entry of travelers from six Muslim-majority countries. He left in place the section of the order that barred the entry of refugees to the United States for four months.

Another federal judge in Hawaii struck down both sections of the ban in a broader court ruling that prevented Trump's order from moving forward.

1. If the 4th strikes the TRO

Good chance the Supreme court would take it up on an expedited appeal. Assuming the 9th upholds, they don't like to leave two different decisions out there.

2. Trump needs to get his guy on the SCOTUS now...

...so this ban can be ruled constitutional.

4. Yes but patience. The SCOTUS only has appellate jurisdiction so it will have to work its way up

through the courts of appeals. But the ban will be struck down.
