Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - The latest on efforts by President Donald Trump's personal attorney to prevent the government from using materials it found in a search of his office and residence (all times local):

President Trump's lawyers have told a judge that the material seized in the raid on Michael Cohen's property is protected by attorney-client privilege.

In a hearing on Friday in Manhattan a federal judge heard arguments as Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen seeks a temporary restraining order to block federal investigators from using the records seized during the raid of his office Monday.

Lawyers for both Cohen and Trump said they wanted to review the records seized before federal prosecutors begin examining them.

A judicial hearing has adjourned until 2 p.m. on efforts by President Donald Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen, to prevent federal investigators from using materials the FBI seized in a search of his Manhattan office, apartment and hotel room this week.
 
Before the adjournment, lawyers for Trump and Cohen told a federal judge in New York that they believe some of the documents and devices seized from Cohen during an FBI raid are protected by attorney-client privilege, and they want a chance to review the material before prosecutors get to examine them.
 
Prosecutors and the attorneys for Cohen and Trump appeared before U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood on Friday in Manhattan.
 
Cohen's attorneys say they want a chance to review documents seized in the raid on Monday and specify items they believe aren't relevant to the investigation.
 
An attorney for the president, Joanna Hendon, told the judge that Trump has "an acute interest in this matter."
