Opinion

CIVIL MINUTES—GENERAL

Proceedings (In Chambers): ORDER RE: ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE REGARDING PRELIMINARY INJUNCTION [11]

On July 10, 2019, Plaintiff Brain Injury Association of California's ("BIACAL") filed an Ex Parte Application for a Temporary Restraining Order, Expedited Discovery and Order to Show Cause re Preliminary Injunction (the "Application"). (Docket No. 7). On July 11, 2019, the Court denied in part the Application and issued an Order to Show Cause Regarding Preliminary Injunction (the "OSC"). (Docket No. 11). In the OSC, Defendant Naz Yari was ordered to explain, in writing and by July 29, 2019, as to why a preliminary injunction should not issue. (Id. at 4).

On July 29, 2019, Defendant filed a Response to the OSC ("Response"). (Docket No. 13). On August 5, 2019, BIACAL filed its Reply ("Reply"). (Docket No. 29). The Court has read and considered the papers filed in connection with the Application and the OSC, and held a hearing on August 8, 2019.

For the reasons discussed below, the Court will continue the hearing to Friday, August [*2]  30, 2019, to allow the parties to conduct limited discovery. The Court will then hold an evidentiary hearing on the disputed issues of fact. In the meantime, Defendant will be subject to a temporary restraining order regarding the use of the contact information that Ms. Yari obtained from BIACAL in and after June 2018 and that had not been originally sourced by Power Liens, LLC. Apart from that, she may continue to plan the Brain SoCal Med Legal Conference ("Brain SoCal").
