Nevada Joins 14-State Postal Service Lawsuit Against Trump

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada has joined 13 other states suing President Donald Trump to block service changes at the U.S. Postal Service, amid fears of problems with mail-in ballots in November.

The multi-state legal effort was filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Washington state, headed by the state attorney general there. It accuses Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, a major Trump donor, of making illegal changes to delivery services.

DeJoy said Tuesday he'll suspend closures of mail processing facilities, won't cut retail hours and will allow overtime. The Washington attorney general says the lawsuit will remain active.
