( – On Thursday, Mark Meadows, Trump’s former White House chief of staff dropped the request that had paused the case against him in Georgia. Previously Meadows had argued that there was a risk that his case in Georgia could end up being tried before he had the chance to have it moved to federal court. However, on Thursday a judge determined that his case did not need to go to trial along with his two other co-defendants in the case whose trial will start next month.

At the same time, the request to have his charges moved has been expedited which could mean that a resolution could be reached within the following few weeks. As a result of these decisions, Meadows argued that the pause was no longer necessary.

In a court filing, his attorneys noted that the Court’s decision to expedite the appeal means that the matter is going to be resolved prior to the Meadows’ trial and before the pre-trial deadlines that have been set. Meadows also pointed out that Fani Willis, the Fulton County District Attorney was not against the motion being dropped, and the judge also signed off shortly after.

Previously Meadows had made filings with three different courts in order to pause many different prosecution aspects, but two of those requests had been denied. On Wednesday a federal district judge had denied the pause of a possible conviction until the resolution of the appeal, while on Thursday state court denied pausing the proceedings.
