      (Politico) A judge on Friday denied the Oregon attorney general’s request for a temporary restraining order to rein in the activities of federal agents responding to protests and unrest in Portland.

      As part of a lawsuit against federal agents in the city, Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum had requested that federal officers clearly identify themselves when seizing protesters and stop arrests without probable cause.

      But U.S. District Court Judge Michael Mosman rejected the motion, arguing that she did not present enough evidence that future harm would continue at the hands of the agents. The judge also raised doubts about whether the state had legal standing to pursue a suit on behalf of protesters or others who might be targeted by the federal officers.

      The decision comes a day after another federal judge ruled-link in a separate case that federal agents would have to stop using force on journalists reporting on the protests.

      @redcloud He’s a Bush appointee. Probably believes in the unitary executive or some such shit. And most Democrats probably voted to confirm him.
