While Armstrong will continue his complaint against USADA, his lawyer, Tim Herman, said Wednesday that since the organization agreed to extend its July 14 deadline for 14 days, a temporary restraining order "is not now necessary," the Austin (Texas) American-Statesman reported
"This extension will allow the court sufficient time to evaluate Mr. Armstrong's amended complaint," Herman said in a statement.
U.S. District Judge Sam Sparks had dismissed Armstrong's first restraining order request, saying much of it was "totally irrelevant" to the charges against the seven-time Tour de France winner. Armstrong's attorneys had then chopped it down, the Los Angeles Times reported.
Armstrong accuses the anti-doping agency of causing him "irreparable injury" and is seeking to stop it from stripping him of his Tour championships, as well as "further equitable relief."
The anti-doping agency alleges he participated in a doping conspiracy for at least 14 years.
