Court filings show lawyers for the state intend to file a motion Wednesday asking a federal judge to issue a temporary restraining order blocking implementation of the new executive order.

 

Neal Katyal, one of the lead attorneys for Hawaii, told CNN that the new travel ban "suffers from the same constitutional and statutory defects" as the President's first executive order on immigration.

 

Both sides in the case have asked for the judge to approve a tight briefing schedule so the state's request can be heard before the new executive order goes into effect on March 16.
