U.S. appeals ruling that barred Postal Service changes before electionReuters | Washington DC | Updated: 28-11-2020 04:24 IST | Created: 28-11-2020 04:24 IST
The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) and President Donald Trump late Friday appealed a federal judge's ruling suspending service changes and requiring aggressive steps to ensure ballot deliveries ahead of the November presidential election, the Justice Department said.
The government said it was appealing U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan's preliminary injunction orders issued in late September in a pair of legal challenges. Sullivan directed the USPS to take "extraordinary measures" to ensure that millions of ballots were delivered by mail and held numerous hearings on the status of ballots.
