CNN's lawyers say the case hinges on Acosta and CNN'sFirst Amendment rights; the shifting rationales behind the ban; and the administration's failure to follow the federal regulations that pertain to press passes, an alleged violation of Fifth Amendment rights.
CNN and Acosta filed suit against President Donald Trump and top aides on Tuesday for stripping Acosta, without warning, of his access to the White House, where he works daily.
"If left unchallenged, the actions of the White House would create a risky chilling effect for any journalist who covers our elected officials", it said.

Acosta was addressing Trump when a White House intern, directed by the president, tried to remove the reporter's microphone mid-question.
Washington Post chief executive Fred Ryan said: "We supportCNN in its effort to restore the press credentials of its White House reporter".
"CNN, who has almost 50 additional hard pass holders, and Acosta is no more or less special than any other media outlet or reporter with respect to the First Amendment".
