U.S. District Judge James Robart issued a nationwide injunction blocking enforcement of President Donald Trump’s recent executive order that banned citizens from seven predominantly Muslim nations from traveling to the United States. Robart, appointed to the Western District of Washington by Geroge W. Bush, ruled in favor of Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson, who sued over the order last week.
Robart ruled that Washington State had standing to bring the case forward. In his oral ruling, he declared that Washington provided evidence that Trump’s order has immediate harm and that the lawsuit against the order has substantial likelihood of succeeding in challenging the constitutionality of the order.
Robart will be issuing a final written ruling. In the meantime, you can see Ferguson’s proposed temporary restraining order below.
