On March 13, the full DC Circuit Court of Appeals said it would consider two cases on whether the judiciary can get involved in disagreements between the other branches of the federal government. This decision will affect, among other things, the fight between Congress and President Trump over border wall funding.

That decision held that judges cannot resolve standoffs over subpoenas between the executive and legislative branches.
