A federal judge in Seattle declined to immediately restrain the activities of a Washington state-based anti-whaling group Thursday.

Judge Richard Jones said he would issue a written ruling later, but that he’s inclined to deny a request for a preliminary injunction made by Japanese whalers against the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.

Auf Deutsch: Das zuständige US-Gericht wird voraussichtlich den Antrag der japanischen Waljagdbetreiber ablehnen, unmittelbar die aktuellen Anti-Waljagdaktivitäten der Sea Shepherd Conservation Society im Südpolarmeer zu untersagen.
