Abstract: 

On October 15, 2019, the United States Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit agreed to rehear en banc the emoluments lawsuit brought by the attorneys general of Maryland and the District of Columbia, which a three-judge panel dismissed due to standing. Meanwhile, on October 17, 2019, President Donald Trump announced the U.S. government has awarded the meeting of the 2020 Group of Seven (G7) summit of the world leaders to his Trump National Doral Miami golf resort in Florida.  On or around the night of October 19, President Trump retracted the announcement that his hotel would host the G7 summit.
