The Department of Justice (DOJ) is considering an appeal after a court ruling in favor of the journalistic freedom organization, PEN America. PEN America filed claims of retaliation against journalists on President Trump back in 2018 after, among other things, the President revoked CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s press credentials because of an unfavorable exchange in the briefing room. The DOJ is considering an appeal to the U.S. District Court Judge Lorna Schofield’s March 24th decision that allowed PEN America to proceed with their case against President Trump. However they will not be able to receive an appeal without permission from both Judge Schofield and the Second Circuit. The administration is also asking for a 6 week extension — from April 7th to May 19th — to respond to PEN America’s claim in light of the public health emergency. MediaPost reports the story here.
