A federal court has ordered the Trump administration to abandon last-minute changes to the 2020 census schedule and extend the time for counting for an additional month.
The preliminary injunction issued by U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh in the Northern District of California is part of a federal lawsuit over the shortened timeline for the national head count. The ruling is expected to be appealed, further complicating what could be the final days of tallying for this year's census.
In response to disruptions caused by the coronavirus pandemic, the administration had previously called for more time for the once-a-decade census and asked Congress to pass four-month extensions to the legal deadlines for reporting results.
