A U.S. judge will hear arguments on Tuesday in a lawsuit by several U.S. states seeking to block the online distribution of 3-D gun blueprints.

US District Judge Robert Lasnik in Seattle, Washington will hear oral arguments in the case at 2 p.m. local time (2100 GMT), his chambers told Reuters.

Eight states and the District of Columbia on Monday filed a lawsuit to fight a June settlement between the federal government and Defense Distributed allowing the Texas-based company to legally publish its designs.

The states will ask Lasnik to issue a restraining order and an injunction to block the publication.
