Winning: Supreme Court Tosses Case Against Trump's 'Travel Ban'

The Supreme Court discharged one of the challenges to a recently lapsed category of President Trump's travel ban and the legitimate battle over its latest efforts to forbid some immigrants will require starting afresh.

The Hawaii case similarly challenged section 2 (c) - but it also challenged the provisions of the ban dealing with refugees. The lawyer dismissed the case in a way which preserved the appeals court ruling against the ban rather than vacating it.

Opponents of the ban, who had persuaded the two appeals courts to block the executive order, said the court should continue to review the cases. The court ordered the parties in both cases to file additional briefs arguing whether the case is now moot given the new order.

The Court is prevented from hearing disputes that are already moot.

"The 90-day ban on their relatives has now been converted into an indefinite ban with the potential to separate their families, and thousands of others', for years", an attorney for the International Refugee Assitance Project said.

The court also vacated the lower-court decision by the Richmond, Virginia-based 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that had found the travel ban violated the establishment clause by disfavoring the Muslim religion.

"We are ready to buy Coutinho in the winter market, or any player the technical staff request", Grau said. Barcelona's summer interest appeared to have an affect on Coutinho.

After Trump replaced his order previously, the court delayed the case which was due this Tuesday.

The third version of the travel ban is also being challenged in court.

The pending appeal by the government challenged a US 4 Circuit Court of Appeals ruling.

Justice Sonia Sotomayor dissented from the court's order, saying she would have instead just sent the case back to the lower appeals court to be continued. It asked the lower court rulings be erased. By putting new versions of his ban in place after old versions expire, Trump may be able to roll the dice over and over again until he finds a version that the Court will deem acceptable. Part of the March 6 executive order remains in place, they reasoned, while the September 24 proclamation restores and even extends many other parts of that order.

The latest travel ban targets five countries included in two previous versions - Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen - as well as Chad, North Korea and Venezuela.
