A federal judge granted a temporary restraining order Friday preventing authorities in Columbia County from enforcing a provision in the state's new sex offender law that bans sex offenders from living within 1,000 feet of a school bus stop. He denied requests for restraining orders in Richmond and Burke counties, saying those requests were premature. The three counties are located along Georgia's border with South Carolina.
