Case Summary

This action, filed February 8, 2017, challenged President Trump’s January 27, 2017, Executive Order (EO-1) ban on admission to the US of nationals of Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. The complaint was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, and it sought "to protect and defend the Iranian-American community in the United States and abroad from the harmful and discriminatory effects of the Executive Order and its implementation."

This action, filed February 8, 2017, challenged President Trump’s January 27, 2017, Executive Order (EO-1) ban on admission to the US of nationals of Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. The complaint was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, and it sought "to protect and defend the Iranian-American community in the United States and abroad from the harmful and discriminatory effects of the Executive Order and its implementation." The complaint argued that the EO-1's enforcement violated the First Amendment Establishment Clause, Fifth Amendment rights to Equal Protection and Due Process rights, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, and the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. §§ 551 et seq.). The complaint sought declaratory and injunctive relief. The plaintiffs were represented by private counsel and the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law.

The plaintiffs were individual Iranian nationals as well as Iranian-American organizations. The individuals included students with F-1 visas, a lawful permanent US resident, dual citizens of Iran and the US, a resident of Iran with an approved J-1 visa, refugee families approved for resettlement through the US Refugee Admissions Program, a family awaiting reunification in the US after receiving green cards, a refugee couple that went through the vetting process of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, and an asylum grantee currently in the US. The organizations were the Pars Equality Center, the Iranian American Bar Association, the National Iranian American Council, and the Public Affairs Alliance of Iranian Americans.

The case was assigned to District Judge Tanya Chutkan.

The same day as they filed the complaint, the plaintiffs moved for a preliminary injunction to enjoin defendants from enforcing the provisions of EO-1 that amounted to the alleged violations.

On March 6, 2017, prompted by adverse developments in the Ninth Circuit in Washington v. Trump, the President rescinded EO-1 and replaced it with a narrower one, Executive Order 13780 (EO-2). That day, the government filed notice in this case of the new EO.

In response to EO-2, the plaintiffs filed an amended complaint and motion for preliminary injunction on March 16, which mooted their February 8 motion for a preliminary injunction.

Numerous civil rights organizations filed an amicus brief in support of the plaintiffs' position on Mar. 23: the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, the Center for Constitutional Rights, the Center for Reproductive Rights, the Chicago Lawyer’s Committee for Civil Rights, the Judge David L. Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law, the Mississippi Center for Justice, the National Center for Lesbian Rights, the National Coalition on Black Civic Participation, the Southern Coalition for Social Justice, and the Washington Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights and Urban Affairs. The brief added the argument that "even if this court were to review the EO under a 'rational basis' test [rather than the strict scrutiny test the plaintiffs seek], the Order would still violate the Constitution’s equal protection guarantee." On April 4, two additional briefs were filed in support of the plaintiffs by former national security officials as well as Human Rights First, KIND (Kids in Need of Defense), and Tahirih Justice Center.

On May 11, after an evidentiary hearing on the preliminary injunction motion in this case and Universal Muslim Association of America v. Trump, Judge Chutkan stayed resolution of plaintiffs' motion for a preliminary injunction. The court found that plaintiffs could not show that they faced irreparable harm, citing the two nationwide injunctions that were then in effect.

On June 2, the government filed an emergency motion to stay the proceedings pending Supreme Court review ofInternational Refugee Assistance Project (IRAP v. Trump which the court granted while denying without prejudice the motion for a preliminary injunction on June 20. The court reasoned that in light of the "substantial overlap between the legal issues present here and those that the Supreme Court," a stay was "the most appropriate path for conserving the court’s resources and adjudicating these cases in the most efficient manner possible." The plaintiffs filed several motions in response, including a motion to lift the stay, a motion for a preliminary injunction, and a motion for temporary restraining order. The court denied them all. 2017 WL 7201732.

The Supreme Court was set to hear oral argument in IRAP on October 10, 2017. However, the travel ban imposed by EO-2 was set to expire in the weeks leading up to oral argument. On September 24—the same day the ninety-day ban was set to expire—the Trump Administration issued EO-3 which indefinitely restricted travel from the following eight countries: Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, Venezuela, and Yemen. In response, plaintiffs moved to have the stay lifted. On October 12, the court granted that motion in part, allowing plaintiffs to file an amended complaint and a new motion for a preliminary injunction. In their amended complaint, plaintiffs argued that the proclamation "continues the most discriminatory aspects of the prior two Executive Orders" and requested that the court impose a preliminary injunction.

A hearing on the preliminary injunction was set for November 2. However on October 25, plaintiffs filed a supplemental memo to their preliminary injunction. They noted that after they filed their motion for a preliminary injunction on October 12, the administration issued a new executive order concerning refugeesthat—when implemented based on the State Department's guidelines—amounted to an effective ban on Muslim refugees. Based on those developments, plaintiffs sought to modify the scope of the preliminary injunction to enjoin the government from "suspending processing of refugees." Plaintiffs also filed an amended complaint in early November. A preliminary injunction hearing took place on Nov. 8.

On January 3, 2018, plaintiffs filed a motion to set a briefing schedule. However, defendants opposed that motion, asking the court instead to stay this case pending the resolution of all all appellate proceedings in the IRAP and Hawaii cases. The court granted the defendants' motion for a stay on March 2, citing "substantial overlap" between plaintiffs' case here and Hawaii which was pending review by the Supreme Court. In the March 2 order, the court also dismissed plaintiffs' motion for a preliminary injunction without prejudice.

On July 31, 2018, the plaintiffs filed notice of voluntary dismissal of the case, likely as a result of the Supreme Court's decision in Hawaii upholding the travel ban issued on June 26 (available at 138 S. Ct. 2392). The case is now closed.
