Appeals Court Will Vote On Rehearing Ban Ruling

The Associated Press

The federal appeals court that refused to reinstate President’s Donald Trump’s travel ban will vote on whether to have a larger panel of judges reconsider the ruling.

The chief judge of the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, Sidney Thomas, announced Friday that one of the court’s judges had requested the vote. The judge was not named.

A three-judge panel of the court a day earlier rejected the Trump administration’s motion to immediately reinstate the travel ban. The 9th Circuit vote will determine whether an 11-judge panel of the court reconsiders the administration’s request.

A majority of the court’s 25 active judges would have to vote in favor of rehearing the case. That prospect was not likely.
