A federal judge found the state of Oregon 'lacks standing' in its attempt to block federal agents' efforts in the state's most populous city.

KOIN 6 NEWS - Federal troops in downtown Portland.A federal judge on Friday denied a request from the Oregon attorney general seeking a temporary restraining order against federal officers in Portland.

U.S. District Judge Michael W. Mosman ruled July 24 that the state of Oregon "lacks standing" in its attempt to block federal agents' efforts in the state's most populous city.

The decision follows another night of unrest in which federal agents arrested seven people and clashed with protesters who lobbed fireworks toward the Mark O. Hatfield Courthouse, started fires and shined lasers into the eyes of officers.

Protests have raged in Portland for nearly two months since the May 25 death of George Floyd.

KOIN 6 News has reached out to Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum for comment and has not received a reply at this time.
