Justice Department asks Seattle judge to defer action on Trump order

Feb 13 (Reuters) - The U.S. Justice Department on Monday said a Seattle federal judge should not conduct further proceedings until after a U.S. appeals court reviews the temporary suspension of President Donald Trump’s travel ban from seven-Muslim majority countries, according to a court document.

Washington state filed a legal challenge to Trump’s executive order announced last month. In a separate court filing on Monday, Washington’s attorney general said a Seattle judge should immediately allow discovery into the merits of its case. (Reporting by Dan Levine; Editing by Sandra Maler)
