Justice Roy - 2021-01-14

Read full decision. Automatically generated summary:

The Plaintiffs executed on November 24, 2020, an interim injunction issued pursuant to rule 374 of the Federal Courts Rules. The interim injunction was granted following an ex parte motion because giving notice to the Defendants would defeat the purpose of the motion. ... The said orders, which were executed simultaneously on November 24, require, among other things, the transfer of control of the infrastructure of the Beast IPTV Service to the independent supervising solicitors. ... They seek to convert the interim injunction into an interlocutory injunction to remain valid until the final determination of the proceeding on the merits. In view of the alleged failure of the Defendants to abide by the terms of the interim order, the Plaintiffs seek an order pursuant to rule 467 to appear before a judge to hear the evidence and present any defence to a charge of contempt. ... As a result, this Court issues the interlocutory injunction sought, as well as the show cause order, and various other orders and a declaration as per the formal Order appended herewith.
