Federal officers walk through tear gas while dispersing a crowd during a July 21 protest in Portland, Ore. A temporary restraining order on Thursday blocked federal agents from knowingly targeting journalists and legal observers.

The judge’s order also blocks the defendants from seizing any cameras, audio and video equipment and press passes, as well as from ordering journalists to stop recording or observing a protest.
