Shutdown Leads To Court Spending Restrictions

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. - The chief federal judge in Delaware has ordered restrictions on travel, training and hiring as the government shutdown in Washington continues.
    
The order issued Thursday by Chief U.S. District Judge Gregory Sleet mirrors one issued the same day by the chief judge of the Third U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia.
    
Sleets order says travel by court officials in Delaware without his consent is to be avoided, and that training activities are suspended. Sleet also said any hiring of new personnel or new expenditure of funds requires his approval.
