UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA SACRAMENTO
April 5, 2010
SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION, PLAINTIFF
ANTHONY VASSALLO, ET AL, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge Lawrence K. Karlton
ORDER PERMITTING CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION DIVISION OF INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE TO RELEASE COMPUTER TO RECEIVER
On April 30, 2009, this Court filed the Order Appointing Temporary Receiver for Equity Investment Management and Trading, Inc. ("EIMT") and Order to Show Cause for Appointment of Permanent Receiver ("OAR") and on July 31, 2009, the Court filed an Order permanently appointing Receiver. Pursuant to the OAR, for good cause shown, and in order to empower and authorize the Receiver to carry out his duties and obligations,
THE COURT HEREBY FINDS AND ORDERS AS FOLLOWS:
Receiver's investigation has revealed that the Criminal Investigation Division of the Internal Revenue Service ("CID") has in its possession a laptop computer previously used by Defendant Anthony Vassallo (the "Vassallo Computer"), which may be of assistance in Receiver's investigation into EIMT's activities and assets. Receiver believes that CID may not have any further use for the Vassallo Computer and may be willing to transfer the Vassallo to Computer to Receiver if authorized by the Court to do so.
Accordingly, the Court hereby authorizes CID to provide Receiver with the Vassallo Computer when CID no longer needs that computer for their investigation.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
