(JUST THE NEWS) – The Biden Justice Department asked a federal appeals court Friday to put on hold part of a judge’s order appointing a special master to review documents the FBI seized from Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate.
The department asked the 11th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals to permit the FBI to immediately regain access to about 100 classified documents and not to submit those through the special master’s review. It did not, however, ask the court to reverse the independent arbiter’s appointment.
“Although the government believes the district court fundamentally erred in appointing a special master and granting injunctive relief, the government seeks to stay only the portions of the order causing the most serious and immediate harm to the government and the public,” the 29-page filing said.
