TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER WITH ASSET FREEZE,ORDER PERMITTING EXPEDITED DISCOVERY, ORDER APPOINTING A TEMPORARY RECEIVER, AND APPLICATION FOR A PRELIMINARY INJUNCTION AND APPOINTMENT OF A PERMANENT RECEIVER
Plaintiffs, Federal Trade Commission and People of the State of New York, pursuant to Section 13(b) of the Federal Trade Commission Act ("FTC Act"), 15 U.S.C. § 53(b), Section 63(12) of New York Executive Law, and Article 22-A of New York General Business Law ("GBL") filed a complaint for permanent injunction and other relief, including consumer redress, and applied for a temporary restraining order with asset freeze, order permitting expedited discovery, order appointing a temporary Receiver, and for a preliminary injunction pursuant to Rule 65 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, and for a permanent Receiver. The Court has considered the pleadings, declarations, exhibits, and memoranda filed in support of Plaintiffs application and makes the following findings of fact:
§ 45(a) and New York: Executive Law Section 63(12) and GBL Article 22-A, and that the Plaintiffs are likely to prevail on the merits of this action.
3. There is good cause to believe that irreparable harm would result in the event of Defendants continued violations of Section 5(a) of the Federal Trade Commission Act, Section 63(12) of the New York Executive Law, and Article 22-A of the New York GBL and that immediate and irreparable damage to the Court's ability to grant effective final relief for consumers in the form of monetary redress would occur from the sale, transfer, assignment, or other disposition or concealment by Defendants of their assets or records unless Defendants are immediately restrained and enjoined by Order of this Court. There is thus good cause for issuing this Order pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 65(b).
4. Good cause exists for the appointment of a temporary Receiver.
5. Weighing the equities and considering the Plaintiffs likelihood of success in its causes of action, this Temporary Restraining Order is in the public interest.

"Assets" means any legal or equitable interest in, right to, or claim to, any real and personal property, including but not limited to chattel, goods, instruments, equipment, fixtures, general intangibles, effects, leaseholds, mail or other deliveries, inventory, checks, notes, accounts, credits, receivables, and all cash, wherever located.
B. "Document" is synonymous in meaning and equal in scope to the usage of the term in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 34(a) and includes writings, drawings, graphs, charts, photographs, audio and video recordings, computer records, and other data compilations from which information can be obtained and translated, if necessary, through detection devices into reasonably usable form. A draft or non-identical copy is a separate document within the meaning of the term.
C. "Named Defendants" means Trans-Asian Communications, Inc. ("Trans-Asian"), Raj Telekom, Inc. ("Raj Telekom"), Trans American Systems, Inc. ("Trans American"), and Rajesh Kalra ("Kalra"), and each of them.
D. "Defendants" means the Named Defendants and their successors, assigns, officers, agents, servants, employees, attorneys, and all persons or entities directly or indirectly under their control or under common control with them, and all other persons or entities in active concert or participation with them who receive actual notice of this Order by personal service or otherwise, whether acting directly or through any corporation, subsidiary, division, or other device.
