On November 13, 2018, Cable News Network, Inc. (“CNN”) and CNN’s chief White House correspondent, Abilio James “Jim” Acosta, filed this suit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. The case was assigned to District Judge Timothy J. Kelly.

Represented by private counsel, the plaintiffs sued President Donald J. Trump, Chief of Staff John F. Kelly, Deputy Chief of Staff William Shine, Press Secretary to the President Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the United States Secret Service, Director of the Secret Service Randolph Alles, and Secret Service member John Doe, under the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) and the Declaratory Judgments Act. The plaintiffs argued that defendants violated the Constitution and APA when they revoked Acosta’s White House press credentials. 2018 WL 5920424.

Specifically, they alleged that the defendants’ decision to revoke Acosta’s press credentials violated the First Amendment and the Due Process Clause of the Fifth Amendment. By revoking Acosta’s White House press credentials solely based on CNN and Acosta’s viewpoint, the content of their speech, their protected First Amendment activity, and by affording Acosta no process to contest this decision, the defendants infringed Plaintiffs’ First and Fifth Amendment rights, the plaintiffs argued.

The plaintiffs sought injunctive and declaratory relief. CNN and Acosta requested that the Court compel defendants to immediately restore Acosta’s press credentials, or immediately restore Acosta’s press credentials pending a formal written explanation as to why the pass was being revoked and an opportunity for plaintiffs to respond to the allegations. Plaintiffs also sought attorneys’ fees, and a declaration from the Court stating that the revocation of Acosta’s press credentials was unconstitutional and in violation of the APA.

On November 13, 2018, plaintiffs also filed a Motion for a Preliminary Injunction, requesting that the Court require defendants to restore Acosta’s White House press credentials. On November 16, in an oral order, the Court granted plaintiffs’ motion, and required defendants to immediately restore Acosta’s press credentials.

Plaintiffs voluntarily dismissed the case on November 19 after Press Secretary Sanders and Deputy Chief of Staff Shine returned Acosta'a White House press credentials to him.

The case is now closed.
