WASHINGTON — CNN’s lawsuit against the Trump administration will get its first major test on Wednesday, when a federal judge will hold a hearing on whether to grant a temporary restraining order to restore White House correspondent Jim Acosta’s hard pass.

“I think there’s very little to be lost in pursuing this,” Mirell said. “Indeed, in my view, this is a righteous lawsuit which deserves to be adjudicated in an appropriate way, unless the White House determines that the cost of doing so is outweighed by simply returning the hard pass to Mr. Acosta.”
