http://nycourts.law.com/CourtDocumentViewer.asp?view=Document&docID=46992 Judge Baer FOLLOWING A jury trial in a breach of contract action, a verdict in defendants’ favor was rendered and the court restricted plaintiffs from engaging in certain transactions that could dilute its liquidity, thereby jeopardizing defendants’ award recovery. Defendants/third-party plaintiffs moved to hold plaintiffs/third-party defendants in civil contempt of the order, asserting that an individual third-party defendant violated the order by allowing a lien to be registered against his property. The individual claimed that since long before the court order, Barclays Bank had a “legal charge” over that property as security for a loan to him and the defendants and that in 2001 he had decided to transfer the security. Plaintiffs contended that the documents for this property are fraudulent. The court found, among other things, that this alleged violation does not warrant a finding of civil contempt since the individual third-party defendant entered into the mortgage transaction long before the court order.
