ORDER DENYING DEFENDANT CONTINUE HEARING CHIQUITA FRESH NORTH AMERICA, LLC's MOTION TO Doc. No. 7
Plaintiffs Aviara Parkway Farms, Inc. ("Aviara Farms") and Rancho Santa Fe Produce, Inc. ("RSF Produce")(collectively, "Plaintiffs") filed a complaint on December 11, 2008, asserting causes of action related to violations of the Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act of 1930 ("PACA"), breach of contract, and intentional interference with contractual relations flowing from a contractual relationship between Aviara Farms and Defendant Agropecuaria La Finca, S.P.R. de R.L. ("Finca").
(Doc. No. 1.) On December 17, 2008, Plaintiffs submitted an ex parte application for temporary restraining order ("TRO") under Fed. R. Civ. P. 65(b), or, alternatively, for preliminary injunction.
(Doc. No. 4, "Req.") This court denied the motion without prejudice and set a hearing on the motion for January 5, 2009. (Doc. No. 5.)
Pending before the court is a motion by Defendant Chiquita Fresh North America, LLC ("Chiquita") to continue the January 5, 2009 hearing to an alternate date. (Doc. No. 7.) For the reasons set forth in the court's December 23 order, the court found this matter appropriate for a short- set hearing. Thus, the court DENIES the motion without prejudice.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
