After the U.S. Supreme Court gave Donald Trump partial immunity in his 2020 election interference case, Judge Aileen Cannon paused deadlines in his classified documents case. This pause is to allow more time for further briefing.

Cannon’s decision means she is partly agreeing with Trump’s request for more discussion on his presidential immunity and delaying some court deadlines to allow for this. This gives the Special Counsel the standard time needed to respond.

Judge Cannon’s ruling affected several deadlines, including the defendants’ Rule 16 expert disclosures, previously due on July 8, 2024, the defendants’ reciprocal discovery, due on July 10, 2024, and the Special Counsel’s CIPA §§ 5-6 submission, also due on July 10, 2024. The Special Counsel may still proceed with filing the CIPA submission if they choose to do so.

Previously accused of showing favoritism toward Trump, Judge Cannon’s swift response to the Supreme Court’s ruling and Trump’s attorneys’ request for a pause has generated significant attention. Her decision to delay the court proceedings in light of the Supreme Court ruling, which also favored Trump, is being closely scrutinized.

State Attorney for Palm Beach County Dave Aronberg commented on the situation, stating that Judge Cannon needs to be cautious as she continues to delay the case.

Aronberg suggested that Cannon’s tendency to err on the side of delay and accommodate Trump’s requests could further postpone the documents case, which he believes is the strongest case against Trump. According to Aronberg, this case was unlikely to be heard before the election regardless of the recent developments.
