Yesterday, President Trump filed a motion to request a stay on upcoming deadlines in his classified docs case. His legal team cited the Supreme Court’s ruling on presidential immunity.

And today, Judge Aileen Cannon just granted that request. Several deadlines in the Mar-a-Lago case will be paused.

Looks like SCOTUS’ ruling is already working in Trump’s favor.

Check it out:

From NBC News:

U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon on Saturday granted former President Donald Trump’s request for further briefing on the issue of presidential immunity in the Mar-a-Lago classified documents case and delayed certain deadlines.

Cannon’s order marks the latest fallout from the Supreme Courts presidential immunity decision on Monday, which ruled that Trump has immunity from prosecution for some conduct as president in the federal election interference case.

In the order, Cannon afforded special counsel Jack Smith the right, but not the obligation, to file a submission on the use of classified information at trial. At the same time, she paused two upcoming deadlines for Trump and his co-defendants.

Smith’s brief is now due on July 18, and a reply from Trump’s team is due on July 21.

Neither Trump’s lawyers nor the Department of Justice immediately responded to a request for comment Saturday afternoon.

There is no trial date in sight in the classified documents case. Trump has pleaded not guilty to all charges.

The Daily Beast also reported:

Judge Aileen Cannon granted former President Donald Trump’s request to delay impending deadlines in his Mar-a-Lago classified documents case on Saturday in the latest fallout from the Supreme Court’s recent presidential immunity ruling.

Trump’s legal team requested the stay on Friday, citing the SCOTUS decision which gives the president immunity when executing “official acts,” according to NBC. The team requested further briefing on the issue of immunity.
