FORT WORTH – A judge extended a temporary restraining order against the organizer of a protest at the Six Flags Over Texas Muslim Family Day while he considers a request for a temporary injunction.

Both sides made their cases in state District Judge Ken Curry's court Monday afternoon as supporters of the injunction, most of them Muslim, watched. The protest of the special event at the Arlington theme park Oct. 14 was organized by Joe Kaufman, president of the Florida-based Americans Against Hate. He argued that the organizers of the Muslim event have connections to Middle East terrorist groups.

The plaintiff's attorney, Don Fulton, said those claims are wrong and dangerous.
