Abstract The lawsuit brings claims focusing on: (1) the delay in the delivery of mail ballots caused by the policy changes, which will place unconstitutional burdens on the right to vote during the ongoing pandemic; and (2) the Postmaster General’s failure to seek approval from the Postal Regulatory Commission, as required by law, before unilaterally implementing policy changes that have a significant nationwide impact. The lawsuit seeks a narrow remedy that would get the Postal Service to return service back to its normal pace ahead of the election this November and appoint an independent monitor to oversee service.
