California Federal Court Holds Tan Nguyen, Operator of the ftaforall Websites in Contempt of Injunction Orders and Imposes Sanctions
On May 14, 2012 the United States District Court for the Central District of California entered an order finding Tan Nguyen in contempt of the Court’s injunction Orders. Nguyen is the owner/operator of ftaforall.us, ftaforall.info, ftaforall.biz and ftaforall.net. NagraStar and DISH Network filed suit against Nguyen and the websites in March of this year. The Court entered a Temporary Restraining Order shutting down the websites and enjoining Nguyen from further statutory violations. After Nguyen re-launched the enjoined content on ftaforall.tk, the Court entered a Preliminary Injunction Order. Today’s Order by the Court holds Defendant in contempt of both of those injunctions and Orders defendant to pay fines to the court after 7 days starting in the amount of $1,000 per day and escalating to $10,000 per day until he is in full compliance.
