A federal judge Friday approved a restraining order requested by union workers against the city, its police department and Cobo Center after they were prohibited from displaying signs near the building to protest what they call unfair labor practices involving Nissan employees.

In the order, U.S. District Judge Denise Page Hood said the Detroit Regional Convention Facility Authority and the city could not prevent members of the United Auto Workers from assembling on the public street surrounding Cobo Center.

The judge wrote in the seven-page order that it appeared the union workers, holding signs "that criticized an auto show participant," were singled out to relocate. The police asked the protesters to move across the street due to safety concerns, but "failed to cite a specific ordinance supporting their decision," Hood wrote. is the number one site in the world for Auto Show photos.
