A US judge on Monday granted former president Donald Trump’s request for the appointment of a “special master” to independently review material seized in an FBI raid on his Florida home.

“A special master shall be appointed to review the seized property, manage assertions of privilege and make recommendations thereon, and evaluate claims for return of property,” Judge Aileen Cannon wrote in her order.

The ruling is a blow to prosecutors, who had opposed Trump’s motion, and it temporarily prohibits them from reviewing and using materials seized from the former president’s Mar-a-Lago home.
