ORDER GRANTING TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER; SCHEDULING ORDER
Upon consideration of Plaintiff's application for a temporary restraining order in this Perishable Agriculture Commodities Act case, 7 U.S.C. §499e(c), the court concludes that Plaintiff establishes the requisite combination of likelihood of success on the merits and irreparable harm under Arcamuzi v. Continental Air Lines, Inc., 819 F.2d 935, 937 (9th Cir. 1987). Consequently, the Court hereby ORDERS: (1) Defendants, their customers, agents, escrow agents, officers, subsidiaries, assigns, banking institutions and related entities, shall not alienate, dissipate, pay over or assign any assets of Bleu Boheme, Inc., Philippe Beltran, or their subsidiaries or related companies except for payment to Plaintiff until further order of this Court or until Defendants pay Plaintiff the sum of $9,710, which sum represents principle, interest, reasonable attorney fees, bank charges, and costs, by cashier's check or certified check at which time the Order is dissolved.
(2) Bond shall be waived in view of the fact that Defendants now hold the aggregate amount of about $9,710 of Plaintiff's assets.
(4) This Temporary Restraining Order is entered on May 5, 2010. A hearing on Plaintiff's Motion for Preliminary Injunction is set for May 14, 2010 at 1:30 p.m. in Courtroom 16 of the Edward J. Schwartz United States District Courthouse, 940 Front St., San Diego, CA 92101.
