Supreme Court hands bad news to opponents of Trump's Muslim ban

The Supreme Court on Tuesday dropped one of two challenges it was considering to President Donald Trump's travel ban policy, declaring moot a lawsuit over Trump's attempt to block issuance of visas to citizens of six majority-Muslim countries.

If the justices are indeed waiting for the 120-day suspension of the refugee program to expire on October 24, there may not be any action on the Hawaii case in the Supreme Court until then. But after the travel ban expired last month and a new policy was rolled out, the court canceled the argument and began to weigh whether it should decide the legality of the policy after all.

In the one paragraph order, the court reiterated because Trump's executive order deceased by its own terms the petition no longer entrusts a live case or controversy.

Adversary of the ban, who had convinced the two appeals courts to occlude the executive order, stated that the high court should perpetuate to review the cases.

The Court is prevented from hearing disputes that are already moot.

The ban's challengers argued that the case against the last version should go forward because numerous same travelers and their families are adversely affected - not just for 90 days, but indefinitely.

The justices did not say what they will do with another challenge lodged by Hawaii, which came up through the 9th Circuit, and which covered a broader set of objections than the 4th Circuit case.

However, the original refugee ban is also scheduled to expire soon, no doubt to be replaced by an altered version.

U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson intends to rule after the U.S. government files a reply.

Unlike the other bans, it treats some countries and types of travelers, such as students or tourists, differently than others.

Mr. Trump last month revised the six-country travel ban first issued in March. Thus, it appears that the Court views the refugee case as still live. Another case that is pending from the Ninth Circuit is also likely to be vacated. Justice Sonia Sotomayor was the only justice to note her disagreement with this outcome; she would have dismissed the case as improvidently granted. By putting new versions of his ban in place after old versions expire, Trump may be able to roll the dice over and over again until he finds a version that the Court will deem acceptable.
