The judge's ruling states the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences has preliminarily shown it is the owner of the award and is likely to win the case. Houston won the award in 1986 for her Grammy ceremony performance of "Saving All My Love for You." (AP Photo/Mark J. Terrill, File)LOS ANGELES (AP) — An auction of Whitney Houston's memorabilia has earned more than $500,000 despite a judge blocking the sale of an Emmy Award won by the late singer.

FILE - In this May 15, 2016 file photo, United States' Auston Matthews, left, fights for the puck with Germany’s Torsten Ankert during a Hockey World Championships Group B match in St.Petersburg, Russia. About a year before Matthews was born in Arizona, professional hockey descended on the desert. Learning to skate might never be a top-of-the-bucket-list item for the youth of the American Southwest, with a prohibitive climate and a scant tradition, but hockey has been on the rise in the Phoenix area since the franchise relocated from Winnipeg in 1996. The embodiment of the sport’s expansion, though, will be on stage Saturday, June 25, 2016at the NHL draft. Matthews is expected to be the first pick. (AP Photo/Dmitri Lovetsky, File)BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — On the heels of the NHL expanding into Las Vegas, the Toronto Maple Leafs are pinning their future on Arizona-born center Auston Matthews.
