On Friday, December 22, 2017, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit through a three judge panel unanimously ruled in favor regarding the preliminary injunction granted by the District Court against the Trump Administration's travel ban only as far as relief for those affected individuals with a "credible bona fide relationship with the United States." The Court will allow the travel ban to continue to take effect as is pending the review of the U.S. Supreme Court.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit will also rule on the legality of this travel ban as the U.S. Supreme Court recently remanded the case back to these two courts while allowing the travel ban to go into effect.
