ATAS wins injunction

The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (ATAS) on Thursday won a preliminary injunction in Los Angeles Superior Court against a company and individuals attempting to profit from the sale of a confidential ATAS membership list allegedly stolen from the Academy’s computer database.

Judge Diane Wayne ruled that a temporary restraining order granted May 8 against the sale and distribution of the member list will remain in effect until the time of trial or a settlement is reached.

The judge also ruled Thursday that besides being barred from using the member list information in any way, the defendants — Premiere Mail Service Inc., its owner Thomas W. Cupp and former ATAS office worker Jonathan Downing — were also required to return any and all originals and copies of the list to the plaintiff.
