Appeals court says F**k You to trump's original travel ban

More great news!

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals said that they will not rehear the case on trump’s original travel ban

The Hill reports
A judge on the appeals court requested last month that the entire 11-judge court vote on whether to assess the three-judge panel’s decision to uphold a temporary block on Trump's original executive order, put in place by a federal judge in Seattle.

Five judges on the court dissented, arguing the panel’s opinion should have been vacated “to clear the path for future relitigation."

One of the dissenting opinions criticized Trump's personal attacks against judges involved in the case.

“The personal attacks on the distinguished district judge and our colleagues were out of all bounds of civic and persuasive discourse—particularly when they came from the parties,” the opinion said. “It does no credit to the arguments of the parties to impugn the motives or the competence of the members of this court; ad hominem attacks are not a substitute for effective advocacy.”
trump already had a set back with his travel ban, U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson of Hawaii has put his revised travel ban on hold.

Face it, this travel ban is a bust
