PRELIMINARY INJUNCTION & TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER (6-28-2011)
OPPOSITION TO MOTION FOR INJUNCTIVE RELIEF BASED ON LACK OF PERSONAL JURISDICTION (6-30-2011)

RETURN TO GORILLA MUSIC VS. GIRL TROUBLE LAWSUIT MAINPAGE

Daniel Thiel sends his stuff by fax and that's why this looks so awful. You can still get the idea. Be sure to note that we are back down to Gorilla Productions vs. Wig-Out Records. What happened to all the nightmares and inability to live a normal life that Dan Janssen was suing us for? I don't know if you can just disappear as a plaintiff but this seemed to be what was happening. It's magic.

Gorilla basically wanted us to take down neverpaytoplay.com, and never mention Gorilla again on our websites or any other websites (and not harrass them, even though we never did). In other words, they pretty much would like to stop our First Amendment Rights. That wasn't so magical.

Here comes the big "one million dollars" claim. They say they had to lay off all these employees, but it appears they've hired just as many to replace them in 2012, besides renting fancy new office space and starting up some other companies like Eagle One Entertainment and going in on another club called Duck Island. And again, be sure to notice that this one million dollars was only a 50% loss of their revenue.

I know it's nit-picky but I thought the expression was "to the tune" not "in the tune." I'll probably get sued for pointing that out.

What a crock of shit. Irreparable harm. Here's what irreparable harm looks like. In the time we were arguing about this Gorilla Productions hosted 22 seperate battles and showcases at Studio Seven alone (which is available if you look through their show calendar)...one of which I attended. Multiply that by the number of bands, which is about 9 per show. So on the average 198 Washington State bands participated in Gorilla shows during this time. Now if that is the average number of shows/bands in every city (and Gorilla claims that they work in 65 of them) that would be 1,430 shows and 12,870 bands in the almost two years we argued about this. Gorilla Music seemed to be going strong through this entire lawsuit. Like I said, crock of shit.
This is what they were hoping for all along...that I'd have to take neverpaytoplay.com down forever and never mention it again.
Here again, "Attorney for Gorilla Productions, Inc." I guess they left poor Dan Janssen in the dust.
Maybe this is standard law stuff, but I thought making up this handy form for the judge to simply sign off on was kind of presumptuous. And to my limited knowledge of these matters, Temporary Restraining Orders are typically requested at the beginning of the trial process, not a year and a half later. It was obvious (even with the loss of a few employees) that Gorilla Music Battles of the Bands were going strong all over the US, including our home state of Washington, despite my criticsm. What 14 days of taking neverpaytoplay.com down would accomplish for Gorilla is anybody's guess. Needless to say, and thankfully, the judge did not sign their little TRO form.

Go get 'em, Wade and Suzanne! This was the very short brief they submitted. I like the part about how they should not be permitted to maneuver around the Court's stay order. Right on!
