WASHINGTON (AP) A federal judge ordered the Trump administration on Friday to immediately return the White House press credentials of CNN reporter Jim Acosta, though a lawsuit over the credentials revocation is continuing.
U.S. District Court Judge Timothy Kelly, an appointee of President Donald Trump, announced his decision at a hearing Friday morning. The judge said Acostas credentials must be reactivated to allow him access to the White House complex for press briefings and other events.
Acosta, CNNs chief White House correspondent, was back in the afternoon. The White House said it would be developing new rules for orderly press conferences.
