Former US President Donald Trump has turned to the Supreme Court in a dispute over the evaluation of confiscated secret documents. Trump's attorneys asked the Supreme Court to overturn the lower court's decision.
At the end of September, the US Department of Justice had achieved an important success in court. The federal court ruled that the investigators may continue to use some of the confiscated documents for their work. It overturned the decision of a court in the US state of Florida. This initially prohibited the investigators from using the documents marked as secret as long as the neutral examiner employed in the case, Raymond Dearie, deals with the documents.
In early August, the FBI searched Trump's Florida mansion. The FBI confiscated various classified documents, some with the highest level of secrecy. According to the law, this material should have been given to the National Archives.
