Federal Judge Says He Will Block USPS Changes


What Happened:

  • Federal Judge Stanley Bastian said during a court hearing on Thursday that he will issue a nationwide order blocking recent changes in the USPS that have slowed down delivery and could affect mail-in voting.

  • Said Judge Bastian of Donald Trump and newly hired Postmaster Louis DeJoy, they "are involved in a politically motivated attack on the efficiency of the Postal Service."

Said Judge Bastian of Donald Trump and newly hired Postmaster Louis DeJoy, they "are involved in a politically motivated attack on the efficiency of the Postal Service."
  • A group of State Attorney Generals sued the USPS last month saying that DeJoy broke the law with some of his policy changes resulting in significant delivery delays.

  • Under Trump’s newly appointed postmaster general, Louis DeJoy, the USPS has been experiencing record delays and cutbacks. DeJoy rejects the claims that he is purposefully trying to sabotage mail-in voting for the upcoming election.
