A U.S. appeals court on Tuesday agreed to permit federal funding of human embryonic stem cell research to continue pending a full appeal, lifting an injunction issued by a federal judge and handing the Obama administration a victory.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit agreed to stay an injunction set by a district court judge who found the administration’s policy on the research violated the law.

The Obama administration has appealed that judge’s ruling.
