A preliminary ruling by a federal judge in Texas found the nearly 29 billion restaurant relief fund set up by President Biden’s administration discriminated against the owner of an eatery who happens to be white.

In an 18-page ruling, Judge Reed O’Connor of the Northern Texas U.S. District Court ordered the Small Business Administration relief program to temporarily stop prioritizing funding applications from businesses owned by women and racial minorities over that of a complainant. Judge Reed said the man is “experiencing race and sex discrimination at the hand of government officials.”

“The evidence submitted by plaintiffs indicates that the entire $28.6 billion in the Restaurant Revitalization Fund may be depleted before plaintiffs’ application can be considered for relief under the program,” Judge O’Connor wrote. The judge said that could cause him “irreparable harm.”
