Challenge To First Travel Ban Is Settled

A Settlement Agreement (full text) has been reached in Darweesh v. Trump, (ED NY, Aug. 31, 2017), one of the challenges to President Trump's now-superseded first travel ban.  As described by the New York Times:
Under the settlement agreement, the federal government is required to identify and send a letter to every individual who was improperly barred from entering the country under the original travel ban, providing a list of free legal services organizations that can help recipients obtain visas or other entry documents. Approval is not guaranteed, but the government agreed to process their applications in good faith.
