TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER WITH ASSET FREEZE, EXPEDITED DISCOVERY, IMMEDIATE ACCESS TO DEFENDANT’S BUSINESS PREMISES, APPOINTMENT OF A TEMPORARY RECEIVER, AND OTHER EQUITABLE RELIEF, AND ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE WHY A PRELIMINARY INJUNCTION SHOULD NOT ISSUE

Plaintiff Federal Trade Commission (“FTC” or “Commission”), having filed its complaint in this matter seeking injunctive and other relief, including redress to consumers, and having moved for (1) a temporary restraining order; (2) an order freezing the accounts, wherever located, belonging to defendants National Grant Foundation, Inc. (“NGF”) and Grant Research & Publishing, Inc. (“GRP”) (collectively referred to as the “corporate defendants”), and defendants Wallace Millman, Anthony Consalvo, Dennis Colonna, and Anthony Lucca (collectively referred to as the “management defendants”) or for which any management defendant has signature authority; (3) an order requiring an immediate accounting of the corporate and management defendants’ assets and transfers of assets; (4) an order permitting expedited discovery as to the corporate and management defendants’ assets; (5) immediate access to defendants’ business premises; and (6) an order to show cause why a preliminary injunction should not issue pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 65(b); and the Court having considered the pleadings, declarations, memoranda, and other exhibits filed in support of the Commission’s motion, and now being advised in the premises, finds:

  1. That this Court has jurisdiction over the subject matter of this case, and that there is good cause to believe that the Court will have jurisdiction over all of the parties;
  2. That there is good cause to believe that NGF, GRP, Wallace Millman, Anthony Consalvo, Dennis Colonna, Anthony Lucca, Harriet Kaye, Beverly Jansen, and Carol Clough (“defendants”) have engaged and are likely to continue to engage in acts or practices that violate Section 5(a) of the FTC Act, as amended, 15 U.S.C. 45(a), and that the Commission is therefore likely to prevail on the merits of this action;
  3. That there is good cause to believe that immediate and irreparable harm will result from defendants’ ongoing violations of Section 5(a) of the FTC Act and that immediate and irreparable damage to the Court’s ability to grant effective final relief for consumers in the form of monetary redress will occur from the sale, transfer, assignment, or other disposition or concealment by the corporate and management defendants of their assets or of the defendants’ business record unless defendants are immediately restrained and enjoined by order of this Court and pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 65(b), and that the interest of justice therefore requires that the Commission’s motion be heard ex parte without prior notice to defendants;
  4. That good cause exists, in light of defendants’ deceptive sales practices, to appoint a temporary receiver over the corporate defendants;
  5. That, weighing the equities and considering the Commission’s likelihood of ultimate success, a temporary restraining order freezing the assets of the corporate and management defendants, permitting expedited asset discovery, and providing immediate access to defendants’ business premises, is in the public interest; and
  6. That no security is required of any agency of the United States for issuance of a restraining order. Fed. R. Civ. P. 65(c).
