Judge plans to decide on TikTok U.S. app store ban by end of day

·1 min read

WASHINGTON, Sept 27 (Reuters) - A U.S. judge in Washington said he plans to decide later on Sunday whether to block a Trump administration order banning Apple Inc and Alphabet Inc's Google from offering Chinese-owned short video-sharing app TikTok for download.

U.S. District Judge Carl Nichols said after a 90-minute Sunday morning hearing that he plans to issue a public order before the end of the day. The Commerce Department TikTok app store ban is set to take effect at 11:59 p.m. EDT. John E. Hall, a lawyer for TikTok, argued during the hearing the ban was "unprecedented" and "irrational."
