BREAKING: Judge dismisses House Dem’s lawsuit over border wall funding

A federal judge on Monday dismissed House Democrats’ lawsuit challenging President Trump‘s authority to tap military funds for a border wall after attorneys for the House asked him to do so.

Judge Trevor McFadden, a Trump appointee, had previously ruled against House Democrats in the case, finding that they didn’t have the standing to go to court and block the administration from diverting military funds under the national emergency order.
The article goes on to state the following:
Lawyers for the House had requested last week that the judge dismiss the lawsuit entirely as they appeal his order to the D.C. Court of Appeals. (See below.)
“The House respectfully disagrees with the court’s standing decision, but the parties are in agreement that there is no need for any further proceedings or briefing in this case and the court should immediately dismiss the amended complaint for lack of jurisdiction and enter final judgment so that the House may promptly appeal that order,” attorneys for the House and Trump administration wrote in the joint court filing last week.
McFadden followed through with that request on Monday, formally dismissing the complaint for “lack of subject matter jurisdiction.”
Now the House can appeal its case to an appeals court.
