Multimark’s International Ltd., 2750, unanimously affirmed Justice Charles Ramos’s grant of Georgia-Pacific Corp’s motion to confirm ex parte orders of attachment against an account held by the Virgin Island corporation, Multimark’s International Ltd., at Bank Audi in New York, and against another account at the same bank maintained by Republican Ltd. of Panama.
