(Reuters) – A U.S. judge on Tuesday halted online distribution of gun blueprints for 3-D printing, issuing an order blocking a settlement the Trump administration had reached with the company which planned to put the plans online.

U.S. District Judge Robert Lasnik in Seattle, Washington said the blueprint’s publication could cause irreparable harm to U.S. citizens.
