The NASL isn't getting its preliminary injunction, intended to delay the rejection of their Division II application. Judge Margo Brodie denied their request, saying the league would be asking to change the status quo, that the profesional league standards are not inherently anti-competitive, and there is not enough evidence to support a conspiracy against the NASL. Not everything went against the rebellious minor league though. They did prove they would suffer irreperable harm from a demotion to the third tier and that there is a conflict of interest between MLS and the USSF. 

The future of the entire NASL is now in doubt, but they aren't folding yet. They will continue with their anti-trust lawsuit against U. S. Soccer and continue to explore other legal options as fast as their Division II sanctioning is concerned.
