UCLA Gets Injunction Against Animal Rights Activists

The preliminary injunction prohibits them from getting near the homes of animal researchers, or posting information online about them. From the article:

According to UCLA, the preliminary injunction prohibits three groups and five individuals from coming with 50 feet of the residences of UCLA personnel involved in animal research during any demonstration and 150 feet at night. It also prohibits the posting of personal information about UCLA personnel on Web sties maintained by the groups and individuals.

The order was expanded to include those acting in concert with the already named individuals and groups. Those failing to comply with the injunction are subject to contempt of court charges.

The order remains in effect until a trial is held on whether to issue a permanent injunction. A Feb. 17, 2009, trial date is set.
