A federal judge in Florida on Monday dismissed a controversial effort which had allowed a federal judge to oversee documents taken from the home of former President Donald Trump. 

The order, signed by U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon of the Southern District of Florida, cites an earlier order from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit which found the judge lacked jurisdiction to grant Trump’s request for a special master’s review. The review, lead by U.S. District Judge Raymond Dearie of the Eastern District of New York, was expected to wrap up soon, however Monday’s order ends it entirely and gives the Department of Justice team investigating Trump access to documents taken from the former president which he argued were protected by assorted privileges.
