Obama temp ban on offshore drilling overturned in court

NEW ORLEANS - A U.S. judge Tuesday ruled against the Obama administration's six-month moratorium on deepwater drilling in the wake of the BP oil spill. The White House, which had hoped the ban would provide time to ensure other wells are operating safely, immediately said it planned to appeal.

The ruling comes in a lawsuit filed by drilling companies to reverse the ban imposed by the Department of Interior.

Mods, can we have a 'Court/Federal court' tag? Thanks!
