On May 6, 2010 Judge Whelan of the Federal District Court for the Southern District of California entered a Preliminary Injunction against Viewtech owner Jung Kwak freezing all of Kwak’s assets. In the Order, the Court found that DISH Network and NagraStar were likely to prevail on the merits of their claims at the conclusion of the litigation and therefore the injunction was warranted. The Court found further support in the admissions made by Kwak in the criminal proceeding against him for conspiracy to hack the NagraStar conditional access technology used to protect DISH Network programming from piracy. A copy of the Order is attached.
