Derrick Watson Federal Judge travel ban – CWEB.com

US District Court Judge Derrick Watson blocked the revised executive order two weeks ago — but it was only a temporary halt through a restraining order. U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson issued the first nationwide halt against Trump’s revised executive order on March 15. That made Watson’s ruling the prevailing block to President Donald J. Trump’s plans, but one only designed to last for about two weeks.
