Supreme Court Cancels Oct. 10 Hearing

The U.S. Supreme Court has canceled its October 10 hearing in the Muslim ban cases, asking both parties to resubmit short letter briefs to address whether the cases are or will be moot in light of the September 24 Presidential Proclamation — and because provisions in EO13780 affecting refugees expires on October 24.

Our legal team is evaluating how this impacts our amicus strategy, including the amicus brief filed on September 18 by Jay Hirabayashi, Holly Yasui, Karen Korematsu, the Korematsu Center for Law and Equality, and our supporting amici.

We hope the Supreme Court will not let the President’s travel ban escape judicial scrutiny through his own manipulations.

What remains unchanged is the urgent need to focus attention on this issue and advance the Call to Action issued by Karen, Holly, and Jay.
