A federal judge’s ruling on Friday, temporarily suspending President Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration, is having an impact across the nation this weekend as some people who were blocked from entering the United States last week are once again able to travel to the country.
On Twitter this weekend, Trump criticized U.S. District Judge James Robart, calling him a “so-called judge” and describing his decision as “ridiculous.”
The case, filed by Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson, was supported by Seattle tech companies Amazon, Expedia and Microsoft.
The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals on Saturday denied the U.S. Justice Department’s motion for an immediate stay of the temporary restraining order pending the government’s appeal of the decision.
So what actually happened in the courtroom? GeekWire boiled down the hour-long hearing to the key moments. Watch the video above for highlights.
