On October 15, 2012, the United States District Court for the Southern District of California entered judgment in HNB’s clients’ favor in their case against Angel Solis and the website. Solis and others were sued in January of 2012 for their operation of the website, and the site’s distribution of piracy-related software files. The Court previously entered a temporary restraining order and a preliminary injunction compelling the website to be taken offline. In addition to the permanent injunction entered by the Court in the October 15th Order, the judge also awarded HNB’s clients statutory damages in the amount of $12 million under their Federal Communications Act claim. The Court further ordered GoDaddy to transfer the website domains at issue in the case to HNB’s client, and ordered Defendants to turn over for impoundment all software files, business records, inventory computer hard drives, and servers related to the operation of the my freen eeds domains to HNB for impoundment.
