The Supreme Court on Monday agreed to hear the Trump administration’s appeal of lower court orders that halted implementation of the president’s controversial ban on travelers from six Muslim-majority nations.

On the last day of their annual term, the justices said they would hear arguments in the case in the fall term that begins in October. Two federal appeals courts have blocked the administration’s second attempt at a temporary travel ban since it was issued in March.

But the court gave the administration a partial short-term victory, allowing the ban to go into effect for travelers who lacked a “bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States.”
