LOS ANGELES, March 29 (Xinhua) -- A U.S. federal judge in Hawaii on Wednesday extended his previous nationwide order blocking the implementation of President Donald Trump's revised travel ban while the lawsuit continues.

U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson's original order halting the travel ban was issued on March 15, hours before the ban was set to go into effect, in the form of a nationwide temporary restraining order.

Court papers show that Watson granted a motion on Wednesday to turn his temporary restraining order into a preliminary injunction, extending his order against the ban while the case moves forward.

The move sets the stage for the Department of Justice to appeal to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, which is the same court that upheld a national halt to Trump's first travel ban last month after a Seattle federal judge ruled against it.

Hawaii has become the first state in the United States to file a lawsuit against Trump's revised travel ban. Judge Watson blocked provisions of the March 6 executive order of Trump that would have frozen the refugee program for 120 days and stopped citizens of six Muslim countries from entering the United States.

The revised travel ban will bar entry of citizens of Iran, Libya, Syria, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen for 90 days.

The new order lowered the named nations from seven to six, among other changes. Iraq, which was included in the first ban, has been taken off the list.

The state of Hawaii sued to stop the travel ban, arguing the president's policy violates the Constitution and the travel ban would harm its economy because of the loss of tourism and the ability to recruit international students.

Trump reacted to Watson's March 15 restraining order by calling the ruling ""an unprecedented judicial overreach"", pledging to take the legal fight all the way to the Supreme Court.

A South Korean law firm said Tuesday that it expected thousands more people to join a class action lawsuit seeking compensation from Samsung over its combusting Galaxy Note 7 smartphones.

Seoul-based Harvest Law filed the initial suit on Monday on behalf of 527 Note (Stockholm: NOTE.ST - news) 7 buyers -- demanding 500,000 won (US$440) per plaintiff for time and effort lost during a chaotic recall process that turned into a PR nightmare for the world's largest smartphone maker.

Although the sums involved -- even when accumulated -- are tiny for a giant like Samsung, the lawsuit illustrates the dent the Note 7 fiasco has made in the prestige of a company used to be being treated as corporate royalty in South Korea.

Its new-found vulnerability was further underlined this week by the decision of a South Korean investment advisory firm to recommended shareholders vote against the nomination to the Samsung board of vice chairman J.Y. Lee -- the family-run conglomerate's heir apparent.

Following multiple reports of phones catching fire, Samsung announced a global recall of 2.5 million Note 7s last month.

After the replacement devices it offered also started burning up, the company decided to scrap the model entirely.

Harvest Law attorney Peter Koh said growing consumer anger had driven the legal action.

"Up until now, we had about 100 people signing up a day -- and more than 300 users joined yesterday alone," Koh said, adding that he expected to add around 3,000 plaintiffs to the lawsuit in a second filing.

A similar class-action lawsuit has been filed by users in the United States.

Koh said Note 7 buyers were "clearly" affected by the month-long recall chaos, forced to make multiple store visits and rent or buy other devices after international airlines banned the smartphone from their flights.

Samsung offered Note 7 owners a full refund or an exchange for a different Samsung phone as well as a 30,000 won (US$26) gift card.

On Monday, it said anyone choosing the exchange option would also receive a 50 percent discount on the new Note 8 or S8 phones expected to be launched next year.
