Anti-Trump Judge, Emmet Sullivan, who presides over the Michael Flynn case, has forced the USPS to rescind rules put in place by Trump’s Postmaster General, Louis DeJoy.
According to Fox News:
A federal judge ruled Tuesday that the U.S. Postal Service must rescind rules put in place by Postmaster General Louis DeJoy over the summer and carry out extra trips to ensure the delivery of election mail.
Judge Emmet Sullivan said in his order that the USPS must notify staff that guidelines from July 14 no longer apply and that “personnel are instructed to perform late and extra trips to the maximum extent necessary” at the same or a greater rate than before those guidelines were issued, in order to increase timely mail delivery, especially election mail.
“Defendants shall issue a one-page notice to, or deliver a Stand-Up Talk to, all USPS personnel who may have job responsibilities related in any way to late and extra trips,” Sullivan added, “stating that: ‘Late and extra trips will be approved to the maximum extent necessary to increase on-time mail deliveries, particularly for Election Mail. Any prior communication that is inconsistent with this should be disregarded. To be clear, late and extra trips will be approved to the same or greater degree than they were performed prior to July 2020 when doing so would increase on-time mail deliveries.'”
Sullivan also ordered USPS to distribute information to staff regarding each state’s deadlines for accepting ballots so that they can ensure timely delivery.
The USPS has said that its priority is the timely delivery of election mail.
