A federal judge on Wednesday rejected the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) bid to swap attorneys working on a case involving the census citizenship question, the second judge to do so in as many days.

Judge George Hazel wrote that he agrees with the other judge’s “well-reasoned order” rejecting the Trump administration’s proposed change in legal teams, saying that “a shift in counsel at this late stage may be disruptive to an already complicated and expedited case.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Hazel, an Obama appointee, said he would ultimately be open to allowing the DOJ lawyers to leave the case and ruled in a way that allows the request to be made again. However, he added that “under the unique circumstances of this request, more specific assurances will first need to be provided.”
“As a practical matter, the court cannot fathom how it would be possible, at this juncture, for a wholesale change in defendants’ representation not to have some impact on the orderly resolution of these proceedings unless defendants provide assurance of an orderly transition between the withdrawing attorneys and new counsel,” the judge wrote.

“A second federal judge – this time in Maryland – has denied the Justice Department’s attempt to swap out the legal team fighting for a citizenship question on the census.” — Mike Balsamo (@MikeBalsamo1) onTwitter

“Another federal judge has rejected the Justice Department’s bid to swap attorneys working on the census citizenship question case, the second judge to do so in as many days.” — Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) on Twitter.
