WASHINGTON — The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday asked parties involved in the challenge to the Trump administration’s travel ban to file new briefs on whether the case should be dismissed.
The court also said that oral arguments in the case will no longer be held on Oct. 10 as scheduled.
The move came after the administration on Sunday unveiled a new wave of travel restrictions on eight countries.
The ban expired Sunday and was replaced by a new policy that affects eight counties and has no expiration date.
Those countries are Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, Venezuela and Yemen.
Chad, North Korea and Venezuela were not covered by the earlier ban.
