News Release from Hawaii Attorney General, August 13, 2018

HONOLULU – Today, the plaintiffs in Hawaii v. Trump voluntarily dismissed their action in federal district court today. This brings Hawaii’s litigation about the travel ban to a close.

Since early 2017, the State of Hawaii has been fighting the Trump administration’s travel bans in the court system. “Although we were disappointed by the United States Supreme Court’s decision upholding President Trump’s third travel ban,” Attorney General Russell Suzuki said, “Hawaii’s fight pushed the administration to walk back its efforts to exclude people from the country. We continue to believe that the third travel ban is unlawful and unconstitutional, and today, we pass the baton to other litigants who have taken up the fight regarding the travel ban’s flawed waiver process.”

Cases regarding the travel ban’s waiver process have recently been filed in the Northern District of California and the Western District of Washington.

“We would like to extend our thanks to Neal Katyal and his team at Hogan Lovells for their extraordinary representation of the plaintiffs in Hawaii v. Trump,” Attorney General Suzuki continued. “Neal and his team represented us pro bono for the majority of the case, and we are grateful for their work in challenging the President’s unprecedented, unjust, and discriminatory policies.”

A copy of the dismissal attached.
