Sup. Court Dismisses Case Challenging Most Recent Travel Ban

1.8k views

On Tuesday, the United States Supreme Court dismissed a case challenging President Donald Trump’s most recent executive order banning travel from six countries, marking a major win for the president.

All nine justices agreed that the case, originating in Maryland, should be dismissed after a new executive order replaced one that recently expired, rendering it moot. The Executive Branch had asked the Court to dismiss the case given that the "ban" in question was no longer in place or relevant.

CBS News reports that Hawaii had also challenged to the ban, as well as issuing a separate challenge to a ban on refugees set to expire on October 24th.

The Court’s decision to dismiss the case potentially sets up the president's current travel ban for new rounds of legal action. USA Today reports that Maryland has already set up a federal district court case, scheduled for next week.

The latest version of the travel ban contains six countries, Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, and Syria. Five of these countries were on the previous travel bans.
