On May 5, 2017, The Boston Globe published a report indicating that President Trump has been sued in federal court 134 times since he was sworn into office. While some suits are frivolous, the plaintiffs in most cases vary from green card holders who were blocked from entering the U.S. as a result of Trump’s travel ban to sanctuary cities that sued after the Trump administration threatened to withhold federal funding. In Trump has been sued 134 times in federal court since inauguration, Boston Globe, May 5, 2017, Matt Viser writes “The dramatic uptick in litigation — Barack Obama faced 26 suits at this point in his first year, while George W. Bush had seven, and Bill Clinton, 15 — is further evidence of the unsettled era ushered in by Trump’s election and the intense fallout stemming from his early executive actions. Court filings may not be as visible as demonstrations on the National Mall, but they ultimately could exert a more lasting check on his executive power.” — Joe
