During a court hearing, Judge Stanley Bastian said he would be issuing a nationwide injunction against USPS later on Thursday afternoon.
The policy changes at the Postal Service created “a substantial possibility” that “voters may be disenfranchised,” Bastian said during the hearing, adding that “harm has already taken place.”
“Substantial evidence has been presented that these transformative changes have been done by the Postal Service which has made mail delivery slower and less efficient,” Bastian said.
Some of the Democratic state officials who brought the lawsuit cheered the judge’s decision.
