The partial government shutdown is affecting some high-profile court cases related to President Trump.
The Department of Justice is asking federal judges to pause deadlines in some cases because of a lapse in funding for department employees.
The request was granted in at least one case today.
That’s when a federal appeals court put on hold a lawsuit against President Trump over proceeds from the Trump International Hotel in Washington.
A court also agreed to pause an appeal case over new asylum restrictions at the DOJ’s request.
It’s still not clear h ow many court cases in total are being affected by the shutdown.
