DECATUR, AL (WAFF) -

A federal judge issued an injunction Thursday, stopping the U.S. government from using Decatur's United Launch Alliance to launch military payloads using any Russian rockets built after the President's executive order.

That order states that the United States can no longer do business with Russia. It is a move Space-X asked for last week.

The ULA said they have two years' worth of engines left for launches, so the injunction doesn't immediately impact flights.

The full contents of the injunction can be read online (PDF).
