A federal judge late Friday blocked a recently approved Seattle City Council ordinance banning police from using crowd-control measures like pepper spray as officers braced for a weekend of protest violence. It's unclear if their role has changed since the riot was declared.

U.S. District Judge James Robart granted a request from the federal government to block the new law, which the Seattle City Council passed unanimously last month. The law meant to de-escalate tensions between police and demonstrators was set to take effect on Sunday.

The temporary restraining order on the legislation was made after the US Department of Justice argued that prohibiting Seattle police from using crowd control weapons could actually result in more deadly force being used in situations where law enforcement need to intervene.
