On Sept. 22, Judge Aileen Cannon struck down two sections of her Sept. 5 order to appoint a Special Master to oversee documents seized by the FBI from Trump's Mar-a-Lago residence in response to the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals’s decision granting the Justice Department's motion for a partial stay of her order. 

The provisions of Cannons order that were stricken include Paragraph 6, which requires the Special Master to submit interim reports and recommendations to the court throughout their review, as well as Paragraph 5(b)(i)(bb), which requires that classified documents under review be made available to Trump’s counsel for inspection under supervision of the special master.
