The White House released new rules for presidential press conferences on Monday in hopes of restoring decorum among reporters.
CNN dropped its lawsuit against the White House after the reinstatement of Acosta's hard-pass. These press facilities are perceived as being open to all bona fide Washington-based journalists, whereas most of the White House itself, and press facilities in particular, have not been made available to the general public.
Earlier on Monday, the cable news network had sought an emergency federal court hearing after the White House said it would again revoke Acosta's pass once a temporary restraining order reinstating it for a two-week period expired.
CNN, a frequent target of Trump's criticism of the news media, said in a statement its lawsuit challenging the White House's actions was no longer necessary. "This has basically been standard procedure - don't hog the mic, don't ask a bunch of questions if the president wants to move on - but there hasn't been a rule saying that asking a second question they didn't approve is punishable by being kicked out of the White House forever".
Last Friday, U.S. District Judge Timothy Kelly temporarily restored Acosta's hard pass.

Acosta's "hard pass", which provided expedited access to the White House grounds, was suspended earlier this month after he engaged in a contentious back-and-forth with Trump during a November 7 press conference.
Later that same day, the White House sent Acosta a formal letter outlining a "preliminary decision" to suspend his pass. "Jim Acosta and CNN will continue to report the news about the White House and the President".
Ms Sanders called his behaviour "absolutely unacceptable", and later tweeted a video of the incident that others said was "doctored".
"We're writing them now". On November 7, the day he was stripped of his pass, Acosta had riled Trump by refusing to give up the microphone at a news conference when he considered that Trump was evading his question.
"What they said though was that we have to create rules and regulations for conduct, etc., etc.", Trump told Fox News host Chris Wallace. Kelly would have found, I think, that Acosta's habit of talking over people at a press conference simply isn't a "compelling" enough reason to ban him from the grounds entirely.
In court, USA government lawyers said there was no First Amendment right of access to the White House and that Acosta was penalized for acting rudely at the news conference and not for his criticism of the president.
