A federal judge granted EchoStar’s [DISH] request for a restraining order late Fri, preventing Viacom [VIA] from yanking its CBS stations, MTV and other nets from the DBS provider. The 2 are ordered to appear in US District of N CA Court Fri, when the judge will decide whether to extend the order.

EchoStar’s take: "We are pleased that the court recognizes that the interest of the public is served by this temporary restraining order."
