Text of Judge James L. Robart's February 3 order in State of Washington v. Trump, No. C17-0141JLR:
http://online.wsj.com/public/resources/documents/2017_2003_robart_tro_ruling.pdf

The states of Washington and Minnesota sued Trump (which is pretty awesome when you think about it) to block part of the Executive Order from Jan. 27, 2017. The court temporarily blocked enforcement of the EO, based on findings that the parties challenging the rule are likely to win when the case is finally heard, and because of the risk of immediate and irreparable injury if the EO is allowed to stand.

As an article in Politicus pointed out, this opens up another legal avenue: prosecuting Trump for contempt of court if he doesn't obey the order.
