The Department of Justice said in a court filing Friday that it intends to petition the U.S. Supreme Court to take up a lawsuit over grand jury materials redacted from former special counsel Robert Mueller III’s report, after a divided panel on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit ruled in the House’s favor.

The DOJ lawyers asked the D.C. Circuit to issue a stay on issuing the mandate of the case, as they would be required to hand over the Mueller grand jury materials by next Friday. The motion also indicates that the attorneys will skip seeking an en banc rehearing, as Trump’s personal lawyers have done in other House lawsuits.
