Federal judge rejects DOJ’s request for shuffling census 2020 legal team

The Justice Department’s effort to change the legal team that handles the 2020 census cases has been rejected by a federal judge in Manhattan on Tuesday. U.S. District Court Judge Jesse Furman said in a court order the department’s 11th-hour request to change lawyers handling the case is ’patently deficient’ and provides no ’satisfactory reasons.’

This is getting beyond out of hand. Before Trump was elected this constant blatant obstructionist rulings wild have been unheard of. It is a gross misuse of power by the judicial branch. The reasons given for the rulings are so subjective that there is virtually no way to to be certain to satisfy them. As all the judge has to say is "that reason isn't good enough for me" then regardless if right or wrong its tied up in the appeals for months until the point is moot. Is there any way to put a stop to this?
