On Friday, a federal judge denied a temporary restraining order sought by a group of Acadiana bar owners against Gov. John Bel Edwards' coronavirus restrictions, according to The Advocate.

The order would have allowed bars to reopen.

U.S. Western District Judge Robert Summerhays instead scheduled a hearing to determine whether to issue an injunction that would allow the owners to reopen until a trial can be held on the lawsuit the bar owners filed to overturn the coronavirus restrictions.

The hearing is scheduled for August 17 at 10:00 a.m. in Lafayette
