Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton on Wednesday asked a federal appeals court for permission to file legal papers in support of President Donald Trump's travel ban, making Texas the first state to back Trump in closely watched litigation over the ban. Paxton asked the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in California to file a friend-of-the-court brief. He said the full court should reconsider whether a lower court judge was justified in halting the ban. U.S. District Judge James Robart in Seattle suspended Trump's entire order across the country on Feb. 3 after its legality was challenged by Washington state.
