United Pacific Energy Operations And Consulting, Inc. et al v. Gas And Oil Technologies, Inc. et al
ORDER to U.S. Marshal to Release Funds 111 , 114 , signed by District Judge Lawrence J. O'Neill on 3/14/14. (Hellings, J)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
UNITED PACIFIC ENERGY
CASE NO. CV F 11-0756 LJO SMS
ORDER TO U.S. MARSHAL TO RELEASE
(Docs. 111, 114.)
GAS AND OIL TECHONOLOGIES,
INC., et al.,
Claimants Tearlach Resources, Inc., Tearlach Resources (California), Ltd., Charles
Ross and Malcolm Fraser (collectively "claimants") have secured a Kern County Superior
Court judgment against United Pacific Energy Corporation, Western States International, Inc.
and Ingrid Aleit-Gass (collectively "judgment debtors"), who are defendants in this action.
Claimants have also secured a writ of execution for the judgment, which was issued by the
Kern County Superior Court. In this action, claimants filed their February 6, 2014 application
("application") to seek this Court's order to require the U.S. Marshal to release to claimants
more than $34,000 ("funds") and interests in Kern County oil and gas leases ("leases"),
pursuant to the writ of execution. The release of the funds apparently was not addressed by the
prior district judge assigned to this case before his retirement.
This Court's February 14, 2014 order required any response to claimants' application to
be filed and served no later than March 13, 2014. No response to the application was filed. As
such and on the basis of good cause, this Court:
DIRECTS the U.S. Marshal to release to claimants in care of their attorney Law
Offices of Richard D. Farkas, Client Trust Account, 15300 Ventura Bld., Suite 504, Sherman
Oaks, CA 91403 all funds held by the U.S. Marshal pursuant to seizures in actions against
judgment debtors United Pacific Energy Corporation, Western States International, Inc. and
Ingrid Aleit-Gass; and
ORDERS claimants, no later than March 20, 2014, to make arrangements with
the U.S. Marshal register their interests in the leases and to submit to this Court the appropriate
proposed order to register their interests in the leases based on information provided and
required by the U.S. Marshal.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
