On December 7, 2009, this Court entered Final Default Judgment against Riqin and in favor of Plaintiffs and issued a Permanent Injunction prohibiting Riqin from committing further acts of infringement and unfair competition against Plaintiffs. (See Permanent Injunction (e-docket 28) and Final Default Judgment (e-docket 29)). Plaintiffs now seek an Order to Show Cause why a finding of contempt and sanctions should not be entered against Defendant Riqin, for his failure to comply with the December 7, 2009 Permanent Injunction. (edocket 28). THE COURT has considered the motion and the pertinent portions of the record, and is otherwise fully advised in the premises, and no opposition has been filed. Accordingly, the February 26, 2010 hearing on the instant motion is hereby VACATED and it is ADJUDGED as follows: I. Plaintiffs have met the standard for civil contempt in the Ninth Circuit set forth in Labor/Community Strategy Ctr. v. Los Angeles County Metro. Transp. Auth., 564 F.3d 1115, 1123 (9th Cir. 2009). Specifically, the Plaintiffs have shown by clear and convincing evidence that Defendant Riqin violated the Court's Permanent Injunction beyond substantial compliance, not based on a good faith, reasonable interpretation of the Permanent Injunction. See id.; see also 15 U.S.C. 1116; e-docket 28. Therefore, Plaintiffs' Motion for Order to Show Cause Why the Defendant Riqin Should Not be Held in Civil Contempt and Sanctioned is GRANTED. Defendant April 2, 2010 Riqin shall file a Response with the Court on or before __________________ showing cause why he should not be held in civil contempt and sanctioned for failure to comply with the Court's prior April 2, 2010 order.
