Naive question: Why were the State Department documents just released?

Was it court-ordered? Aren't most court-ordered things send on a long trip to the Supreme Court these days?

1. A court ordered the release of the documents

pursuant to a lawsuit brought by a citizen organization, American Oversight, under the Freedom of Information Act.

4. But why did this order take effect where so many end up at the Supreme Court?

5. Because it Friday and it was an order.

Other than that I can only speculate even more.
