USPS: ‘We believe the court acted prematurely’ on stopping mailings

DENVER (KDVR) — The United States Postal Service is reviewing the court’s decision to figure out its next move, according to James Boxrud, USPS Strategic Communications.

Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold and the State of Colorado were granted a temporary restraining order after filing a lawsuit on Saturday.

The USPS response to the TRO and lawsuit on Sunday said: “We are continuing to review the court’s decision in this case to determine the appropriate next steps. However, as an initial matter we believe the court acted prematurely because it did not hold a hearing, or even give the Postal Service an opportunity to respond to the states allegations. We believe that presentation of the complete facts will demonstrate that the court’s decision is legally unfounded.”

Griswold filed a lawsuit accusing the USPS of sending misinformation about mail-in ballots to voters. According to Griswold, the State of Colorado requested to stop the mailing but the service refused.
