SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — A Sacramento judge has frozen the spending of a disputed $30 million originally earmarked for the San Francisco 49ers new stadium in Santa Clara.

The San Jose Mercury News reports that Sacramento Superior Court Judge Lloyd Connelly on Tuesday issued a temporary restraining order, barring use of the funds until the matter is settled.

The dispute arose after a Santa Clara County board responsible for allocating redevelopment funds said the money should be used for more pressing community needs like schools.

The 49ers argue the money is legally theirs because it was allotted by voters in 2010 to help build the $1.2 billion stadium. The city of Santa Clara, where the stadium is being built, agrees.
