On April 11, 2016, Judge Real of the Central District of California granted an ex parte application for a temporary restraining order in favor of our client ReachLocal, Inc. ReachLocal sought to prevent defendants Kieran Cassidy and his company, PPC Claim (collectively, the "Defendants"), from contacting its clients, employees, and investors. The article on the TRO can be accessed here. After granting the TRO, Judge Real set an expedited hearing for April 11 for a preliminary injunction.
On April 11, 2016, at 10:00 a.m., Judge Real heard arguments from counsel for the issuance of a preliminary injunction against the Defendants. Judge Real granted the preliminary injunction and issued an order shortly after setting forth the same terms for the preliminary injunction as the TRO. A copy of the minute order granting the preliminary injunction can be found here.
