A flurry of filings have been submitted to the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in the U.S. government's attempt to obtain a stay of the temporary restraining order against enforcement of much of President Trump's immigration and refugee executive order. Both sides have filed memoranda supporting their positions.  In addition, eight amicus briefs have been filed.  Links to all the filings are available on the 9th Circuit's website. The court will hear oral arguments by telephone on Tuesday, February 7, 2017 at 3:00 p.m. PST and will promptly make recordings publicly available. New York Times reports on developments.
