NEW YORK – New York Attorney General Letitia James today scored another important victory in the fight against the Trump Administration’s attempts to dismantle the United States Postal Service (USPS) and disrupt operations in an effort to undermine the November presidential election. An interim order issued by the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia clarified that the Trump Administration must take every effort to restore USPS sorting machines and use special measures (including delivering mail via air transportation) to deliver election mail on time over the next several weeks. Last month, the court issued a preliminary injunction, national in scope, that was set to immediately take effect, but for a month the Trump Administration has made excuses in an effort to avoid full compliance with that order.
