Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh on Friday announced plans to use his newfound power to sue the federal government by joining a Washington state lawsuit trying to upend Republican President Donald Trump‘s new travel ban.
The General Assembly granted Frosh, a Democrat, sweeping authority last month to file lawsuits against the Trump administration without first securing Republican Gov. Larry Hogan‘s approval. When Frosh joins Washington’s lawsuit on Monday, he will use that power for the first time.
“Frosh told those assembled at the Owen Brown Interfaith Center that Trump’s travel order was “inhumane.”
