Virginia-based Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals to hear Trump travel ban case on May 8

Virginia [U.S.A.], Apr. 11 (ANI): The Virginia-based Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals has decided to hear the government's appeal of a lower court order blocking United States President Donald Trump's revised travel ban with its full panel of judges, as reported by The Hill.

Post streamlining the appeals process, the court will look into the matter.

The government in its appeal has urged for a Maryland district judge's decision to nullify Trump's executive order which has temporarily banned nationals from six majority-Muslim countries from entering the U.S. hours before it was set to take effect.

The Fourth Circuit will hear oral arguments on May 8. (ANI)
