Amazon has been in court since late 2019, after the DoD made a decision to award Microsoft the $10 billion JEDI deal claiming that, due in part to President Trump's late-stage interference with the bidding process, AWS lost out becoming the preferred partner of the Pentagon.
As of now, neither Amazon or the Department of Defense have spoken to news of the injunction, and we'll update accordingly as new information becomes available.
Amazon had asked the court to block the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure contract, known as Jedi, which is worth up to $10bn over 10 years.
As part of the lawsuit, Amazon wants to question Trump about his communications with its competitors and with Pentagon officials to establish his "well-documented personal animus towards Mr. Bezos, Amazon, and the Washington Post", according to a court filing. Microsoft, arguing that government contract professionals did their jobs properly regardless of Trump's tweets, said Amazon "impugns, demeans and discredits government personnel at all levels, despite the utter absence of any support for their accusations".
Pentagon spokesman Robert Carver said in a statement that the ruling unnecessarily delays implementation of the cloud contract and deprives "warfighters of a set of capabilities they urgently need".

Amazon did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The e-commerce giant's lawsuit chronicles a laundry list of comments and actions by Trump and the Defense Department that it claims show the Pentagon bowed to political pressure when awarding the deal to Microsoft. The contract is meant to give the military better access to data and technology from remote locations. Amazon and Microsoft were finalists for the lucrative contract, for which Amazon was considered an early front-runner.
Last year, Mr Trump told reporters that the United States was looking closely at the contract, noting that he had been getting "tremendous complaints" from several companies about it. The judge issued the following concessions before granting a temporary band that includes earmarking the $42 billion-dollar "just in case", it needs to be given to Microsoft or Department of Defense for "costs and damages".
