The U.S. Department of Justice on Tuesday said it would voluntarily dismiss its own appeal of a Seattle federal court ruling that had suspended President Donald Trump's first executive order concerning travel from seven Muslim-majority countries, Reuters reported.

The Trump administration this week issued a new executive order that supplanted the one which had been challenged in court by the state of Washington.

In a court filing on Tuesday, the Justice Department told the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that Washington state did not oppose the administration's request to end its appeal.
