Another federal judge said Monday that the operational changes the U.S. Postal Service made under Trump-aligned leadership over the summer hurt voters.
U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan in D.C. is the third judge to issue an order blocking the changes. While Postmaster General Louis DeJoy had previously announced that USPS was voluntarily putting some of the new plans on hold, he has stood by other policies he has implemented, while playing down some of the changes that have also apparently slowed delivery times. Sullivan, in his preliminary orders, ruled in favor of both the procedural arguments — alleging that the changes violated USPS regulatory law — and the voting rights arguments that had been made in the D.C. case.
