A Los Angeles Superior Court judge won't halt the Sunday premiere of Limetime's new Steel Magnolias remake.

The network has confirmed that Victoria L. White's motion for a temporary restraining order has been denied.

White, who was an executive producer on the original 1989 film starring Sally Field and Julia Roberts, sued on Monday, alleging that she had a right to participate on television projects based on the movie. White claims that she is entitled to credits and compensation from television adaptations.
