9th Circuit denies Trump “immediate administrative stay” pending further briefing


No decision on the attempt to reinstate the Immigration Executive Order at least until Monday night

Just before midnight Pacific time on Saturday night, February 4, 2017, a three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, in a short-form Order, refused to stay a lower court ruling that had halted Trump’s Executive Order on visas and refugees.

The Order reads:

The court has received appellants’ emergency motion (Docket Entry No. 14). Appellants’ request for an immediate administrative stay pending full consideration of the emergency motion for a stay pending appeal is denied.

Appellees’ opposition to the emergency motion is due Sunday, February 5, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. PST. Appellants’ reply in support of the emergency motion is due Monday, February 6, 2017 at 3:00 p.m. PST. 

The Order was filed just two and one half hours after the government filed it’s Emergency Motion for a Stay Pending Appeal.
