Court Cases Affected By Government Shutdown

Local News

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.
