The ban was was announced in September.

It applied to travelers from Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria and Yemen plus some Venezuelan government officials and their families.

Rulings against the ban in Hawaii and later in Maryland only apply only to the six Muslim-majority countries.

They do not affect the restrictions against North Korea or Venezuela, because the plaintiffs did not ask for that.
