A federal judge, Carl Nichols, has decided to suspend an executive order issued by president Donald Trump that would have banned the Chinese video sharing app TikTok from being downloaded on mobile phones in the U.S. The ban was scheduled to start from Sept. 27.
TikTok filed an appeal against the ban on Sept. 18.
However, the judge did not suspend a total ban on the app, scheduled for Nov. 12.
The Department of Commerce said that the government will comply with the injunction but intends to ”vigorously defend” the executive order and its implementation from legal challenges.
