Court Dissolves Temporary Restraining Order, SpamCop Allowed to Continue to
Report Complaints of Spam From Optinrealbig.com
SAN BRUNO, Calif., May 12 /PRNewswire/ -- IronPort Systems, the world's
leading email infrastructure products and services company, today reports that
the temporary restraining order against SpamCop.net, a wholly-owned subsidiary
of IronPort Systems, Inc has been dissolved.
On May 10, 2004, the United States District Court, Northern District of
California, the Honorable Saundra Brown Armstrong of the Northern District of
California granted Optinrealbig's ex parte application for a temporary
restraining order against SpamCop. The TRO was presented and considered ex
parte, meaning Optinrealbig's application was decided without the benefit of
receiving argument or evidence from SpamCop. May 11, 2004, after considering
SpamCop's opposition papers, the Court issued an order dissolving yesterday's
TRO. In so doing, the Court cited the fact that yesterday's order and
SpamCop's opposition "crossed each other in the e-filing system," and
expressly found that "the balance of hardships and the interests of justice
favor dissolution of the TRO." The Court further wrote to "clarify that the
TRO [entered May 10] was not a determination of the merits of the case."
SpamCop is gratified by the expedited consideration of its papers and the
order entered today by Judge Armstrong.
