A federal judge ruled that two defendants must turn over their financial records to the plaintiff on a monthly basis after years of attempting to avoid paying a $1.28 million judgment in a copyright infringement case.

In a March 20 opinion, the U.S. District Judge Richard D. Bennett of the District of Maryland denied objections lodged by defendants SCH Enterprises and Mark T. Pappas to a magistrate judge’s Feb. 9, 2022, order granting plaintiff Victor Stanley Inc. motion to compel monthly production of defendants’ financial records.
