AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) A federal judge says Augusta National Golf Club will hold three green jackets and other Masters memorabilia while a lawsuit over an online auction plays out.

The Augusta Chronicle reports that U.S. District Court Chief Judge J. Randal Hall on Friday granted the club's request to hold the items. A lawsuit filed by Augusta National Inc., which owns the club and tournament, asks a judge to stop Florida-based Green Jacket Auctions Inc. from selling the famed green jackets in an online auction.

The club contends the items are either stolen or fakes prohibited by the club's trademark. An attorney for Green Jacket Auction says the company acquired the items from third-party owners.
