April 2, 2018: NAPABA Leads 62 APA Bar Associations in Supreme Court Amicus Brief Challenging President’s Third Muslim and Refugee Ban

The National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (NAPABA) led 62 affiliated national and local Asian Pacific American bar associations, including ABAS, in filing an amicus brief in Trump v. State of Hawaii (No. 17-965), to be argued before the United States Supreme Court on April 25, 2018. Together, these Asian Pacific American bar associations urged the Court to support the injunction of President Trump’s Sept. 24, 2017, revised executive order barring refugees and individuals from six Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States.
