49ers Granted Restraining Order On $30M In Funds

The 49ers won an early battle in what could be a lengthy fight with a Santa Clara oversight board seeking to take funds from the team's stadium project.

A judge has ruled that local schools may not spend the $30 million dollars the oversight board cut from the team's plans, noting that the money had been earmarked by voters to help fund the new stadium.

The oversight board seized the funds on June 22 with plans to spend the money on local schools, but the 49ers were granted a temporary restraining order to freeze the $30 million at Tuesday's hearing.
