Federal Appeals Court, Once upon a time, there was a man named Donald Trump who used to be the boss of a big country. But guess what? He got into a bit of trouble, and now there’s a rule that says he can’t talk about certain things while waiting for a special trial!
Federal Appeals Court : The Gag Order
It’s like when your parents say, “No talking about the surprise party, okay?” A judge named Tanya Chutkan told Donald Trump, “No talking about the people involved in your trial or the people who work at the court.” This rule is called a “gag order.”
Federal Appeals Court : Trying to Change the Rule
Donald Trump didn’t like this rule. He wanted to tell everyone his side of the story, but the judge said no. So, he asked some important judges, 11 of them, to change the rule. But, oh no! They said, “No changes. The rule stays!”
Federal Appeals Court : The Big Court in Washington
All this happened in a big court in a place called Washington, DC. It’s like a big play area where the judges decide if the rules are fair. The judges in this court are really important, like the referees in your soccer games.

The Three Wise Judges
First, there were three judges who decided the rule was okay. They said, “No talking, Mr. Trump.” Now, 11 judges, even more than three, said the same thing! It’s like when your mom and dad both say, “No ice cream before dinner!”
