Case Caption: Crucians In Focus, Inc., et al. v. VI 4D, LLLPCase Number: S. Ct. Civ. No. 2012-0093Date: 10/15/2012Author: Per CuriamCitation: Summary:

This appeal from a repeatedly-extended temporary restraining order that functioned as an appealable preliminary injunction, and from the associated imposition of contempt penalties, is appropriate for summary disposition. Since the Superior Court violated binding precedent from the United States Supreme Court when it issued, and repeatedly extended, an ex parte restraining order precluding the appellant from publishing certain information on its website, without performing any First Amendment analysis, relating to either the prior restraint doctrine or the requirements for any injunction that restricts freedom of speech or the press, the July 13, 2012 temporary restraining order and all subsequent extensions are vacated, and - because the restraining order is invalid - the August 6, 2012 Opinion holding the appellant in civil contempt is reversed.
