The U.S. Supreme Court cleared lower courts to move ahead in a clash over a grand jury subpoena for President Donald Trump’s financial records, formally returning the case to the appeals court level ahead of schedule.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance had asked the justices not to wait 25-plus days, as they normally do after issuing an opinion. The court ruled on July 9, rejecting Trump’s claim of sweeping immunity while leaving open the possibility he could raise more specific objections in the lower courts.
