On April 16, 2010, Judge Thomas Whelan (Federal District Court for the Southern District of California) granted the plaintiff’s DISH Network and NagraStar a temporary restraining order (“TRO”) against Jung Kwak, the owner of Viewtech (Viewsat).

A hearing is set for May 6th to determine if the judge will convert the TRO to a preliminary injunction pending resolution of the claims against Kwak.
