re: Alan Dershowitz: Supreme Court will likely uphold most of Trump travel ban - Pettifogger
[quote]Not necessarily. There could be several reasons why a travel ban might be instituted and it can happen at any time. The ruling will possibly affect future travel bans or limitations so it should be decided regardless of whether or not one is in place at the time of the hearing or the ruling. ...
