Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson filed this lawsuit on January 30, 2017 against President Trump’s January 27, 2017 Executive Order barring legal immigrants and refugees from seven majority-Muslim countries from entering the US and barring Syrian refugees indefinitely. The State filed a complaint and an emergency motion for a temporary restraining order in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington. The State of Minnesota also appeared as a plaintiff.

The complaint argues that the State has an interest in protecting the “health, safety, and well-being of its residents” as well as “ensuring that its residents are not excluded from the benefits that flow from participation in the federal system.” A series of declarations also filed that day from officials at Washington State University, Amazon.com, Expedia, and the University of Washington all articulated the negative impact their students and employees, as well as the overall institutions, will experience as a result of the Executive Order. The complaint alleges that the executive order violates Fifth Amendment equal protection and due process rights, the First Amendment Establishment Clause, the Immigration and Nationality Act, the Foreign Affairs Reform and Restructuring Act, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, and the Administrative Procedure Act.

The complaint sought declaratory and injunctive relief. The State’s request for temporary restraining order sought to enjoin defendants, nationwide, from barring entry into the U.S. of immigrants and nonimmigrants pursuant to the executive order.

The case was assigned to Judge James Robart, who held a hearing on February 3, and granted the temporary restraining order in a written order, posted here. By its explicit terms, that order is nationwide, and operative against both the 7-country travel limits, the 120 stay on the U.S. refugee program, and the indefinite ban on Syrian refugees. CBP is apparently now letting people on planes and into the country.

Late in the evening on February 4, the Department of Justice sought a stay pending appeal from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. The Court denied an immediate stay, and set a quick briefing schedule, with the plaintiffs' opposition and the U.S. reply due February 6. At that point, the Court will reconsider the stay application.

The plaintiffs' opposition was filed early morning on Feb. 6. It included a remarkable sworn declaration by 10 former national security officials (Madeleine K. Albright, Avril D. Haines, Michael V. Hayden, John F. Kerry, John E. Mclaughlin, Lisa O. Monaco, Michael J. Morell, Janet A. Napolitano, Leon E. Panetta, Susan E. Rice) arguing that no particular threat justified the Executive Order, and that the Order undermined rather than assisted national security.

Through February 6, additional organizations filed amicus briefs, and the federal government filed its reply brief. The parties additionally submitted a joint status report proposing a briefing schedule for the plaintiffs' motion for preliminary injunction. On February 7, the court adopted the parties' proposed briefing schedule for the plaintiffs' preliminary injunction motion. Briefing is set to run from Feb. 9 to Feb. 17.

On February 7, the 9th Circuit (Judge William Canby, Jr., Judge Richard Clifton, and Judge Michelle Friedland) heard oral argument on the federal government's motion to stay the TRO. Special Counsel at the U.S. Department of Justice August Fientje argued on behalf of the federal government, and Washington State Solicitor General Noah Purcell argued on behalf of the states. On February 9, the 9th Circuit denied the stay. In a to-be-published opinion, the court rejected the U.S. argument that the Executive Order was unreviewable, and found that the Department of Justice had not demonstrated that it was likely to win the case. Accordingly, the district court's TRO would remain in effect. The court set an expedited briefing schedule for the appeal of that TRO, over the course of March 2017.

The President immediately tweeted "SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!" However, on Feb. 10, news reports first stated that the federal government had decided not to seek immediate review in the Supreme Court, and then stated the opposite. That same day, a judge on the 9th Circuit requested (without prompting by a party) that the 24 judges of the circuit vote whether or not to review the matter "en banc" -- that is, using a larger panel of 11 judges, rather than the initial three. The 9th Circuit gave the parties till Feb. 16 to file simultaneous briefs with their views about en banc review.

Back in the district court, also on February 10, 2017, Judge Robart directed the parties to file a joint status update by February 12, 2017. A telephone conference took place on Monday, February 13, 2017 to discuss how the case would proceed in the district court. DOJ explained that it planned to pursue further review in the 9th Circuit, and sought to postpone any further proceedings in the district court. The States, by contrast, urged the district court to "proceed directly to discovery." Both parties agreed that no further briefing on a preliminary injunction was necessary. On February 14, 2017, Judge Robart ordered the parties to proceed with litigation. In his opinion, Judge Robart concluded that the Ninth Circuit did construe the district court's temporary restraining order as a preliminary injunction. Consequently, the parties need not submit further briefings concerning a preliminary injunction. However, Judge Robart agreed with the states that litigation should continue while the defendant's appeal of the preliminary injunction is pending. He then ordered to parties to proceed directly to discovery. In a February 15 order, the court specified that the parties' joint status report was due March 22, 2017.

Just a day later, however, the U.S. changed its mind about its plans. In a filing in the 9th Circuit, the DOJ explained that
"Rather than continuing this litigation, the President intends in the near future to rescind the Order and replace it with a new, substantially revised Executive Order to eliminate what the panel erroneously thought were constitutional concerns. In so doing, the President will clear the way for immediately protecting the country rather than pursuing further, potentially time-consuming litigation. Under the unusual circumstances presented here—including the extraordinarily expedited proceedings and limited briefing to the panel, the complexity and constitutional magnitude of the issues, the Court’s sua sponte consideration of rehearing en banc, and respect for the President’s constitutional responsibilities—the government respectfully submits that the most appropriate course would be for the Court to hold its consideration of the case until the President issues the new Order and then vacate the panel’s preliminary decision."


En banc proceedings before the court have been stayed pending further orders.

Meanwhile, the State of Oregon filed a motion to intervene in the district court on Feb. 22, along with a series of declarations in support of the motion. The motion argues that "the States of Washington and Minnesota are not in a position to speak to the
injuries suffered in Oregon," and that "[i]f Washington and Minnesota prevail in this case, as they should, it is possible that this Court may craft a more limited remedy, short of a nationwide injunction, that will not address the harm to Oregon’s unique sovereign interests."

On Feb. 24, the government filed a motion to hold proceedings in abeyance pending further order of the court. The government argued that the court's Feb. 16 order staying en banc proceedings "reflects the appropriateness of awaiting further developments before committing further resources of the parties or the Court to appellate litigation." The petitioners filed an immediate response to the government's request, arguing that the motion to hold proceedings in abeyance should be denied: "[a]lthough Defendants contend that this case presents urgent national security issues, they now request indefinite delay of the Ninth Circuit proceedings." The petitioners also noted that "there appears to have been a lack of communication between the Department of Justice and the White House" regarding whether the government plans to repeal the existing EO or defend it on appeal. The petitioners further argued that, given that the government's motion does not make new representations about whether the President intends to rescind the EO, and given that the White House has "repeatedly stated that the Executive Order will not be rescinded," there is no justification for the abeyance request. For these reasons, petitioners said, briefing on the merits of the preliminary injunction should continue as planned.

This case is ongoing. We'll post more as the case develops.
