The Public Prosecutor’s Office halted all work at the stadium, where construction worker, Marcleudo de Melo Ferreira, died after a fall of 115 feet.
Ferreira’s death was the fifth death related to work on the World Cup stadiums.
Andrade Gutierrez, the construction company hired to perform the work, had halted construction until Sunday after Ferreira’s death.
Jorsinei Dourado do Nascimento, of the prosecutor’s office, stated that the construction company was informed of the court’s decision.
"As of noon today [Sunday] the work is banned," he said.
"There is a need for a detailed report attesting that the minimum safety requirements for laborers working in heights are in place," prosecutors said in a statement.
If construction is resumed without permission from the court, Andrade Gutierrez would face fines of up to $43,000.
Work can begin after Andrade Gutierrez has proved that appropriate safety measures have been taken.
Construction is not expected to be finished on the stadium until mid-April.
Andrade Gutierrez has not issued a formal statement.
A local labor union stated that workers are considering striking due to poor working conditions.
