(Mass. Corp.), 4 Online Auction Learning Center, Inc. (Nev. Corp.), Christopher F. Bowser, Adam S. Bowser, 5 and Jody Marshall (collectively “Defendants”), for: (i) extension of the Temporary Restraining 6 Order (“TRO”) issued against Defendants at 1:30 p.m. on March 14, 2018 [ECF No. 29]; and (ii) 7 postponement of the evidentiary hearing on the FTC’s motion for a preliminary injunction. The 8 FTC and Defendants, each of which is represented by counsel for purposes of this stipulation, 9 HEREBY STIPULATE TO THE FOLLOWING: 10 1. The duration of the TRO is extended until the Court issues a ruling on the FTC’s 11 request for a preliminary injunction, or further order of the Court. Unless otherwise ordered, all 12 provisions of the TRO shall remain in place during the extension, including the asset freeze and 13 appointment of the receiver Robb Evans & Associates LLC. The requested extension is without 14 prejudice to Defendants. The reason for the extension of the TRO is to allow the Defendants 15 additional time to prepare for the preliminary injunction hearing, and to allow the FTC and the 16 Defendants additional time to conduct compromise negotiations. Defendants specifically reserve 17 all rights and nothing herein shall be construed as an admission of any kind or impair 18 Defendants’ right to assert any and all defenses they may have. 19 2.
