The process to discontinue the University of Iowa women’s swimming and diving team is still underway after a federal court judge rejected a request for a restraining order.

According to The Gazette, U.S. District Court Judge Stephanie Rose rejected the request of six female student-athletes one day after it was formally made.

“Because plaintiffs have not established the threat of irreparable injury ‘of such imminence that there is a clear and present need for equitable relief to prevent irreparable harm,’ … they have not established a need for such immediate emergency relief,” Rose wrote in an order Friday, according to The Gazette. “However, the court appreciates the time-sensitive nature of plaintiffs’ dilemma as a general matter, and finds expedited briefing to be appropriate.”
