DALLAS (AP) - A judge in Dallas is ordering an auction company to hold onto a champion’s green jacket from the Masters golf tournament until ownership can be determined at trial.

Judge Emily Tobolowsky granted Augusta National Golf Club a temporary injunction Monday to stop Dallas-based Heritage Auctions from selling the jacket won by Art Wall Jr. in 1959. Last month the club, which claims the jacket was stolen from there, was granted a temporary restraining order days before it was to be auctioned.

Local media reports Stephen Pyles of Florida, who paid about $61,000 for the jacket at auction last year, now wants Heritage to sell it.

Pyles says there’s no proof the jacket was stolen and disputes the club’s claims that Masters jackets are supposed to remain there.
