On February 3, 2017, a temporary restraining order (TRO) was issued in response to legal challenges to President Trump’s immigration and travel-related Executive Order (EO), “Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States.”  The TRO halts the 90-day travel prohibition against citizens and nationals of seven designated countries.  The TRO has survived an initial, emergency challenge filed by the US Department of Justice (DOJ); however, ongoing challenges to both the EO and TRO remain.  Developments are moving quickly in the case currently pending with the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.  For more information, please see our advisory.
