In November 2013, Judge Mauskopf issued preliminary injunction orders against all the Defendants, which continued the asset freezes and other relief through the duration of this case.  The Commission’s action is currently in the discovery phase, where the parties exchange documents and other information.  The court has not set a trial date.
