Judge Orders Trump Administration to Restore Acosta's Press Pass
TheStreet

A federal judge on Friday issued a temporary restraining order to restore CNN correspondent Jim Acosta's White House press pass, which had been suspended indefinitely after a dispute between the reporter and President Donald Trump a week earlier.

Judge Timothy Kelly, a Trump appointee, gave an initial victory to CNN in the ongoing case. CNN is suing Trump and five other members of his administration, including chief of staff John Kelly, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, deputy chief of staff Bill Shine and Secret Service Director Randolph Alles, for infringing Acosta's First Amendment rights.

The suit shows the increasingly hostile relationship between Trump and much of the mainstream media, which he has described as both "fake news" and "the enemy of the people."
