The Supreme Court on Monday ruled that parts of President Donald Trump’s revised travel ban may take effect, but carved out an important exemption for anyone with “a credible claim of a bona fide relationship” to a U.S. person or entity. The court will hear arguments in October on the legality of the Executive Order, but in the meantime questions are sure to arise over what it means to have “bona fide” ties to the U.S. BAL has drafted an FAQ that addresses who is affected by the Executive Order, who is exempt, and other questions businesses and employees might have regarding traveling to or out of the U.S. at this time. The FAQ is available here.
