New limits on ammunition magazines will continue in Colorado while sheriffs seek to overturn the law in court after attorneys in the case agreed on some technical fixes.

A federal judge in Denver says there was nothing for her to rule on because attorneys for the state and the sheriffs had hammered out an agreement late Tuesday.
The sheriffs were in court seeking a preliminary injunction on the law that bans magazines that hold more than 15 rounds.
Both sides agreed that magazines that have removable baseplates won't be considered part of ban and won't be seen as being adaptable to hold more rounds than what the law allows.
Attorneys for both parties say now they can debate whether the law violates the Second Amendment. No trial has been scheduled.
