Judge extends order halting travel ban

Thu, 30 Mar 2017 12:15:45 GMT

A federal judge in Hawaii has granted the state's request for a longer term halt of the revised travel ban executive order. US District Court Judge Derrick Watson blocked the revised executive order two weeks ago -- but it was only a temporary halt through a restraining order. The plaintiffs asked for it to be converted into a longer term preliminary injunction, and he agreed Wednesday night.(image)
