Law360, New York (October 17, 2017, 3:24 PM EDT) -- A Hawaii federal judge on Tuesday largely blocked the Trump administration’s third travel ban, issuing the order not long before some of the restrictions were set to take effect on Wednesday.

U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson issued a temporary restraining order blocking the Trump administration from implementing travel restrictions for nationals of Chad, Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen and Somalia. The restrictions for North Korea and Venezuela were not affected, however.
