The criteria for granting such injunctions are very stringent.
Evidently the Government has failed to meet them. (The lawyers here
can comment on the specific criteria, but I would guess that the
Government failed to demonstrate "irreparable harm".) This does not
mean that the judge has decided that the law doesn't apply to RFB; it
simply means that the Government has not met the applicable burden of
proof to obtain an injunction at this stage of the proceeding.
