In a statement on Tuesday morning, CNN said it is seeking a preliminary injunction as soon as possible so that Acosta can return to the White House right away, and a ruling from the court preventing the White House from revoking Acosta's pass in the future. In a statement Tuesday, the White House Correspondents Association's president, Olivier Knox, said the organization "strongly supports" CNN in regaining its access.
CNN lawyer Ted Boutrous said the White Houses's suspension of the press pass made "clear it was based on the content of the reporting".
Acosta calls the White House claim a "lie", and video of the incident on Wednesday shows that he only touched the intern on her arm as she tried to grab the microphone from him.
"While the suit is specific to CNN and Acosta, this could have happened to anyone". The White House also muted audio of the incident in which Acosta can be heard saying "Pardon me, ma'am" as the intern repeatedly reaches for his mic.
The news network also filed a request for a temporary restraining order that would require the White House to immediately restore Acosta's credentials while the lawsuit for permanent reinstatement is pursued. "This is just more grandstanding from CNN, and we will vigorously defend against this lawsuit", Sanders said. "You have to treat the White House with respect, you have to treat the presidency with respect".

Sir Rod Stewart has taken to Twitter to blast Donald Trump over his "accusatory" tweet about the Californian wildfires. He knows friends and family are still being reunited with missing loved ones, but he said his unease grows every day.
Acosta, meanwhile, is in Paris, where Trump will be landing later on Friday. The First Amendment protects journalists against arbitrary restrictions by government officials. The First Amendment is not served when a single reporter, of more than 150 present, attempts to monopolize the floor. The beginning of the clip has extra frames that would be indicative of an adjustment to slow the clip down, and then the actual moment of the incident is sped up to make Acosta's actions look more aggressive than they actually were.
Trump told Acosta at the news conference that "CNN should be ashamed of itself, having you work for them".
Sanders hasn't said where the video she posted comes from. "You are a rude, awful person".
"Otherwise, what's the criterion for pulling someone's press credentials?"
Acosta has continued to do part of his job, contacting sources and filing stories, but he has been unable to attend White House events or ask questions in person - a basic part of any White House correspondent's role. The agency said Sherrill, who had been in a fistfight with one of Johnson's campaign aides, was a physical threat to the president.
