Appeals court rejects Hawaii's request to let grandparents and other relatives bypass travel ban – Los Angeles Times

The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday rejected a request from the state of Hawaii to expand the number of people who can bypass President Trump’s travel ban, dealing one of the main challengers to the president’s executive order two court losses in two days as it fights to minimize the ban’s effect on travelers.

The order from the appeals court came a day after a Honolulu-based federal district judge denied the same request, saying he would not “usurp” Supreme Court orders that had revived a limited version of the travel ban.

In its order, a panel of three 9th Circuit judges said they “do not fault” the Hawaii judge for rejecting the state’s claim against how the ban is being implemented.

The judges suggested that the ban’s challengers made a technical mistake in their filing in Honolulu when they asked U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson to “clarify” the Supreme Court’s instructions on the ban, instead of asking for “injunctive relief or to modify the injunction” of the travel ban.
