DC Judge Orders Postal Service To Restore OT Pay
A Washington, D.C., federal judge has ordered the Trump administration to restore postal service overtime pay and allow late mail deliveries, affirming parts of a lawsuit filed by a group of allegedly disenfranchised primary voters as mail-in ballots arrive for the general election.
Judge Emmet Sullivan granted a preliminary injunction to four voters who requested but did not receive mail-in ballots for 2020 primary elections, saying they met a high bar for proving allegations that U.S. Postal Service policy changes violated their voting rights, according to the order. The injunction is the latest in a series of lawsuits against the USPS amid concerns about the upcoming election.
The voters are represented by David Berg, Bronwyn James, James Quinn, Kathryn Berg, Geoffrey Berg and Joel Androphy of Berg & Androphy.
