The tape featured the Austin Powers star, who played the character Mini Me, as well as his former girlfriend.

TMZ removed the clips of the tape on Friday evening following the ruling from the judge.

U.S. District Judge Philip Gutierrez stated that Verne Troyer would “suffer irreparable harm to his reputation” if the clip from the tape was released on the site.

The judge granted a temporary restraining order, per the request of Troyer’s attorneys.

This ruling also stops any distributor from releasing the full 50-minute sex tape.

Verne Troyer is also seeking $20 million in damages, as well as the return of all copies of the tape.
