ORDER EXTENDING TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER
This matter is before the Court on plaintiffs’ Motion for Extension of Temporary
Restraining Order and Entry of Preliminary Injunction [Docket No. 16]. The Court has
jurisdiction pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1331.
On September 12, 2017, the Court entered a temporary restraining order
enjoining defendants from posting, publishing, or maintaining certain YouTube videos
containing defamatory content. See Docket No. 14 at 7. The temporary restraining
order will expire on September 26, 2017 unless extended by the Court. Id. Plaintiffs
state that defendants have not removed the four YouTube videos as required by the
temporary restraining order. Docket No. 16 at 2, ¶ 4. In addition, plaintif fs claim that
defendants have purchased an internet domain where they have published defamatory
statements and defendants have disseminated an email with defamatory content to
plaintiffs’ employees and to immigration attorneys in the Denver area. Id. at 2-3, ¶¶ 4,
9-10. As a result of the foregoing, plaintiffs claim that good cause exists to continue the
temporary restraining order. Id. at 4, ¶ 13.
In light of defendants’ ongoing violations of the temporary restraining order, the
Court finds that good cause exists to extend the temporary restraining order for an
additional 14 days. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 65(b)(2). It is therefore
ORDERED that plaintiffs’ Motion for Extension of Temporary Restraining Order
and Entry of Preliminary Injunction [Docket No. 16] is granted. It is further
ORDERED that defendants, defendants’ officers, agents, servants, employees,
and attorneys, and any other person in active concert or participation with those
individuals are temporarily enjoined and restrained from posting, publishing, or
maintaining the following YouTube videos:
It is further
ORDERED that this order will expire on October 10, 2017 unless extended by
the Court, upon motion by plaintiffs, for good cause. It is further
ORDERED that plaintiffs shall serve a copy of this order on defendants at the
email address known to plaintiffs.
