USPS defies court order to find missing ballots

https://hillreporter.com/u-s-postal-service-defies-court-order-to-find-missing-ballots-84257

The United States Postal Service has been court-ordered to do a “sweep” for 300k missing mail-in ballots. They’ve refused.

Can the USPS just decline to follow an order from a federal judge? That’s the question sweeping the nation as election day comes to a close. The Washington Post has reported that the order from U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan of the District of Columbia required the USPS to do a sweep of facilities in 12 postal districts in 15 states, by 3:30 pm.

Instead, the agency’s attorneys sent back a response over an hour after the deadline, refusing to comply, saying they couldn’t follow the order “without significantly disrupting preexisting activities” and suggesting that the court couldn’t possibly have meant for that to happen.

Attorneys, legal experts, and voters alike expressed shock that an entity could expect to get away with flatly refusing to comply with a Federal order, especially at the expense of voting rights.

3. Huh. The federal judges I know would take a dim view of a party ignoring their orders.

I would expect someone to be cited for contempt.
