Given the results of the hearing held in March This ruling was surprising. At that time, Judge Buchwald urged the parties to seek solutions outside the courtroom and suggested that: Perhaps Trump can ban, but can not block those comments.

"Why did we hold a hearing here?" Judge Buchwald asked at the hearing. "Did we not have a solution that met the interests of the plaintiff or the president?" she added, " It is better to solve it in some practical ways." After the March hearing, Fallow said she could accept Buchwald's proposal. "I think bans are a viable option. This limits and burdens the plaintiff's right to speak."

But some plaintiffs do not agree with this idea. In June last year, outside the Manhattan Courthouse, a professor of sociology Philip Cohen said that the ban can't solve potential problems.

He said: "I don't know whether the ban is really a solution. If the president really just didn't want to hear what we were saying, as they said, then he could choose to ban the word. But Obviously, he actually wants to suppress our remarks."
