Judge Aileen Cannon formally dismissed former President Donald Trump’s lawsuit Monday to block government access to materials the FBI took from Mar-a-Lago in its August raid, CNBC reported.

The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals decided Dec. 1 to overturn Cannon’s appointment of a special master to review the documents in the case. She ordered the case’s dismissal Monday, citing lack of jurisdiction, according to CNBC.

The FBI raided Mar-a-Lago as part of a probe into 15 boxes containing White House documents brought to the Trump-owned resort. The raid recovered 11 document sets with classification markings and a variety of other materials.

Cannon had selected Judge Raymond Dearie as special master, a court-appointed role, to review the raided items. The 11th Circuit Court argued that she “improperly exercised” a jurisdictional expansion in appointing one.

The circuit court already ruled in October that the special master could not review over 100 classified documents that the FBI took from Mar-a-Lago, reserving those particular records for DOJ review, CNBC reported. Trump subsequently petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court to void that ruling, but they declined.

On Friday, a federal judge rejected the DOJ’s request to hold a Trump legal team in contempt of court for not fully complying with a May subpoena for documents with classification markings, sources familiar told ABC News. Chief Judge Beryl Howell asked the DOJ and Trump’s team to collaborate for a mutual resolution, according to CNN.

The DOJ and a spokesperson for Trump did not respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
