A U.S. federal judge who temporarily halted the enforcement of President Donald Trump’s entry ban ruled Monday that the case challenging the ban itself will move forward, while another federal judge issued a new injunction to keep the ban from being implemented in the state of Virginia.

District Court Judge James Robart ruled earlier this month that people from Iraq, Iran, Syria, Libya, Yemen, Somalia and Sudan who have valid visas to enter the U.S. may do so, and the nation’s refugee admissions program can continue, all while courts consider whether Trump’s executive order is legal.

Since that ruling, the government appealed to a three-judge panel at the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, which upheld Robart’s decision to pause enforcement of the ban.
