BREAKING: Census Judge Deals Blow to Trump Administration’s Plan
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by Bloomberg:
A federal judge rejected a request by the Trump administration to assign a new legal team to a lawsuit that blocked the U.S. from adding a citizenship question to the 2020 census.
U.S. District Judge Jesse Furman in Manhattan called the government’s request “patently deficient,” adding that the U.S. had provided “no reasons, let alone ’satisfactory reasons,’ for the substitution of counsel.”
The article goes on to state the following.
Government officials have been searching for a way to insert the citizenship question on the census following a Supreme Court ruling that put the administration’s plan on hold because its rationale for the query was “contrived.” The forms for the once-a-decade headcount must be prepared soon to meet the deadline for 2020.
The “mere expectation that withdrawal of current counsel will not cause any disruption is not good enough,” Furman reportedly wrote in the Tuesday order.
