A group of technology companies plans to meet on Tuesday to discuss filing an amicus brief in support of a lawsuit challenging U.S. President Donald Trump's order restricting immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries, said a spokesperson for a company organizing the gathering.
The meeting is being called together by GitHub, which makes software development tools.
Amicus, or friend of the court, briefs are filed by parties who are not litigants in a case but want to offer arguments or information to the judge.
Alphabet's Google, Airbnb and Netflix are among the companies invited, a separate person familiar with the situation said.
Representatives for Google and Netflix could not immediately be reached for comment. An Airbnb spokesman declined to comment.
The technology sector has become the clearest corporate opponent to the ban announced last week. The industry depends on talent from around the world, and companies have been considering the best way to muster their resources, with efforts so far including statements condemning the move and financial support for organizations backing immigrants, such as the American Civil Liberties Union.
