In Seattle, Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson filed a request that US District Judge James Robart apply his Feb. 3 injunction halting enforcement of the first executive order to the two key travel and refugee bans in the new order.

Notably, Ferguson’s office is asking for a hearing to be held on Tuesday to address the request — a day before hearings have been set in two other cases challenging the new executive order, which is due to go into effect at 12:01 a.m. ET Thursday.

Robart quickly responded, ordering the Justice Department to respond to the state’s request by 4:30 p.m. PT Tuesday. Additionally, he suggested a hearing might not but necessary, but that, if one is, it will not be held before Wednesday.
