HAMMOND, Ind. - A federal judge in Indiana on Oct. 28 denied a CFS Bancorp Inc. shareholder's request for a preliminary injunction to block the merger of CFS Bancorp Inc. and First Merchants Corp., finding that an injunction "would prevent the shareholder vote from being taken based on nothing more than unspecified misrepresentations or omissions causing unspecified misrepresentations" (Jay Orlando v. CFS Bancorp Inc., et al., No. 13-0261, N.D. Ind.; 2013 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 153917).
