Court Grants Ex Parte Application For TRO And OSC Re Issuance Of Preliminary Injunction
On February 22, 2013, the Alameda County Superior Court granted the ex parte application for a temporary restraining order, order to show cause re: issuance of preliminary injunction, and order for expedited discovery filed by Bergeson, LLP on behalf of its client. The firm’s client, a technology company, learned that certain defendants were disseminating its confidential information on internet message boards. In disseminating this confidential information, however, the defendants used pseudonyms, and their identities were, therefore, unknown. The firm’s client accordingly filed, and the Court granted, the above application, authorizing the client to, among other things, serve discovery on the relevant internet service provider in order to ascertain and discover the identities of the unidentified defendants and then ultimately enjoin these defendants from continuing to disseminate the client’s confidential information on the message boards. Daniel J. Bergeson, Mindy Morton, and Kyung Lee represented the client.
