(RNN) – The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld the suspension of President Donald Trump’s travel ban.
The unanimous ruling upheld a Feb. 3 decision by a Seattle judge that halted the ban nationwide.
The Trump administration appealed the ruling and asked that the ban be reinstated. But the three-judge panel in San Francisco ruled in favor of the plaintiffs.
The State of Washington and the State of Minnesota had the right to bring the case, the ruling stated, and the suspension is still in full effect.
The government’s option now is to continue the case to the U.S. Supreme Court, which currently has only eight serving justices who are ideologically split. If the SCOTUS deadlocked at 4-4, the decision by the district court in Seattle would be sustained.
