A lot has happened since a federal judge in DC ordered DOJ to turn over Mueller grand jury materials to House Dems. The deadline was going to be today, but the DC Circuit temporarily put that on hold until it formally rules on DOJ's motion to stay pending the appeal
Before going to the DC Circuit, DOJ also asked the lower court judge to put her order on hold. The judge last night denied the request: ecf.dcd.uscourts.gov/cgi-bin/show_p…

This doesn't interfere with the DC Circuit's temp hold, but it gives Dems a boost as the circuit weighs the stay issue
Again, the lower court judge's order isn't binding on the DC Circuit, but this is her way of adding to the record and making the case for why no stay is warranted: "The serious infirmities in DOJ’s arguments have already been addressed at length," Chief Judge Beryl Howell wrote
Briefing on the stay issue in the DC Circuit is set to finish on Nov. 5, so we don't expect any ruling until after that point. If the DC Circuit won't grant the delay DOJ wants, they're expected to petition SCOTUS to get involved
