US: court relief for TikTok against Trump ban

Sep 28, 2020 17:26 IST

In a relief for TikTok in the US and a blow to the government, a federal judge has temporarily blocked Trump's ban on the video sharing app. A district judge granted a preliminary injunction against the ban on TikTok after an unusual Sunday morning hearing. The judge, however, refused to grant an injunction against a November deadline for its sale. ByteDance is fighting the Trump administration in court even as it pursues its approval for the sale of a stake in the US business to Oracle and Walmart. Trump has called for bans on both TikTok and WeChat.
