Judge rejects DOJ effort to delay House lawsuit against Barr, Ross

Judge rejects DOJ effort to delay House lawsuitA federal judge on Friday rejected the Trump administration’s request to delay a lawsuit against Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross for defying congressional subpoenas as part of a probe into officials’ handling of the 2020 census.

U.S.  District Judge Randolph Moss in Washington, D.C., said in a status  conference that with the census approaching he recognizes the urgency of  the case from the House Oversight and Reform Committee and has set an  expedited schedule for both sides to brief the court.

“I think it’s important to get going with the process,” said Moss, who was appointed by former President Obama.
