The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit on Friday said the White House can’t temporarily suspend the press pass of Playboy correspondent Brian Karem over an altercation with former Trump aide Sebastian Gorka in the Rose Garden last July.

In an unanimous opinion authored by Judge David Tatel, the court found the temporary suspension of the hard pass violated Karem’s due process rights, as the White House had not set specific standards on when media access could be revoked. The opinion, joined by Chief Judge Sri Srinivasan and Judge Cornelia Pillard, upheld a preliminary injunction issued by U.S. District Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson that blocked the suspension.
