Plaintiffs in Hawaiʻi v. Trump voluntarily dismissed their action in federal district court on Monday, effectively bringing Hawaii’s lengthy litigation over the travel ban to a close.

Since early 2017, the State of Hawaiʻi has been fighting the Trump administration’s travel bans in the court system.

Hawaiʻi Attorney General Russell Suzuki said he continues to believe that the third travel ban is “unlawful and unconstitutional,” but will pass the baton to other litigants who have taken up the fight.

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

“Hawaii’s fight pushed the administration to walk back its efforts to exclude people from the country,” said Suzuki.  “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, noting that Neal and his team represented the state pro bono for the majority of the case.
