Block of TikTok ban appealed by Trump Administration

The US Department of Justice confirmed that it filed an appeal against a decision of a federal judge in Pennsylvania that halted the TikTok ban from coming into force on 12 November 2020.

The US Department of Commerce previously issued a statement that it will ‘comply with the injunction … but intends to vigorously defend the (Executive Order) and the Secretary’s [of Commerce] implementation efforts from legal challenges.’
