A federal appeals court says it will hold off on deciding whether to have a larger panel of judges reconsider a ruling that kept President Donald Trump's travel ban on hold.
    
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals made the announcement on Thursday after Trump said he planned to issue a new travel ban next week.

The administration had asked the 9th Circuit to put the case on hold until the new order is issued. It then wants the court to toss out last week's decision by a three-judge 9th Circuit panel that kept the ban on hold.
