(CNN)The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals heard oral arguments Tuesday evening on whether Judge John Robart's temporary restraining order (TRO), which halts implementation of President Donald Trump's temporary freeze on travel from terror-prone countries, should stand. In hearing oral arguments, the Ninth Circuit -- the nation's most liberal court with the reputation as its most reversed -- ought to heed the words of Justice Antonin Scalia, notably quoted by President Trump's nominee to the Supreme Court, Neil Gorsuch: "If you're going to be a good and faithful judge, you have to resign yourself to the fact that you're not always going to like the conclusions you reach."
