Korematsu Center brief cited in appellate court hearing

May 16, 2017

An amicus brief filed by the School of Law’s Fred T. Korematsu Center for Law and Equality was cited during a federal appellate court hearing on the Trump Administration’s revised travel ban on May 15 in Seattle. A three judge-panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals was hearing arguments before deciding whether to uphold a Hawaii judge’s decision to block the ban, which suspends the nation’s refugee program and temporarily bans visas from citizens of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.
