Virginia-based appeals court agrees to hear arguments in travel ban case
by Lydia Wheeler
The Virginia-based Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals has decided to hear the government's appeal of a lower court order blocking President Trump's revised travel ban with its full panel of judges.
The court polled its 15 judges and a majority agreed Monday to hear the case en banc, streamlining the appeals process.
The government is appealing a Maryland district judge's decision to block Trump's executive order that temporarily banned nationals from six majority-Muslim countries from entering the U.S. hours before it was set to take effect.
