Federal judge orders Trump administration to provide records on USPS service changes

US District Judge Stanley Bastian gave the Trump administration and the USPS 10 days to provide records and information about service changes that could undermine main-in voting in the November election.

More than 20 states filed lawsuits last week over the changes, and Bastian granted the states’ request to speed up discovery in that case. The Justice Department opposed the request, stating that much of the information the states are seeking is already in the public record.

Postmaster General Louis DeJoy announced Thursday that he was halting many of the changes, which included reducing overtime and removing mail sorting equipment.
