On May 26, 2010 the United States District Court for the District of Maryland ordered that expedited discovery sought by DISH Network, EchoStar and NagraStar could proceed. The motion was sought after defendants Robert Kluver and Leona Broda consented to entry of a preliminary injunction against them, but subsequently moved out of state and failed to apprise the court of their new address or respond to the lawsuit.
On March 10, 2010, NagraStar LLC, DISH Network L.L.C. and EchoStar Technologies L.L.C. filed suit against Robert Kluver [aka DishTester], Leona Broda, and www.currentbins.com for, among other things, engaging in piracy of DISH Network programming, distributing pirate software, and for their involvement in IKS piracy.
The United States District Court for the District of Maryland entered a temporary restraining order against Kluver, Broda and www.currentbins.com and ordered the United States Marshals Service to seize defendants’ computers, piracy-related materials, receivers, and related equipment. The seizure was successfully executed on March 23, 2010.
Operation of defendants’ websites has also been restrained by the court and defendants have transferred the below websites to plaintiffs.? ?
