A federal judge put off acting on a request by Florida to find that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention violated an injunction against pandemic-related restrictions on the cruise-ship industry.

The decision Monday by U.S. District Judge Steven Merryday came after a flurry of legal activity that started Friday when a federal appeals court blocked restrictions that the CDC had imposed on the industry because of COVID-19. The appeals court kept in place a preliminary injunction that Merryday issued against the CDC last month.
