UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
January 28, 2010
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
SANDRA HATFIELD, DAVID H. BROOKS, PATRICIA LENNEX DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Seybert, District Judge
Defendant David Brooks has been remanded to custody. Consequently, Global Security Group, Inc. is discharged from its function as Court-appointed monitor. Defendant Brooks' posted bond security is forfeit to the United States Government. Upon the conditions the Court has previously set, Defendant Brooks may petition to have a portion of that forfeit set aside. Any restraints that the Bond Release Order imposed on David H. Brooks, Victoria Brooks, Andrew Brooks, Elizabeth Brooks, Jeffrey Brooks and Terry Brooks, or their assets, are hereby lifted.
Within seven (7) days, Defendant Brooks is ORDERED to pay Global Security Group, Inc. the sum of $87,667.51, representing Global Security Group's bills due and owning. To that end, pursuant to N.Y. C.P.L.R. § 5222 and its own inherent power, the Court hereby issues a Restraining Notice directed against all of Defendant Brooks' personal bank accounts. Until Mr. Brooks extinguishes his debt to Global Security Group, Inc., he may use his personal bank accounts only to make payments to Global Security Group, Inc. See N.Y. C.P.L.R. § 5222(b) (debtors may use restrained accounts only "upon direction of the sheriff or pursuant to an order of the court"). This Restraining Notice includes, but is not limited to, Defendant Brooks' Chase account ending in # 2497. Defendant Brooks failure to extinguish his debt to Global Security Group, Inc. within seven (7) days may result in the Court holding him in contempt and imposing monetary sanctions.
Counsel for Defendant Brooks is ORDERED to serve a copy of this Order upon Global Security Group, Inc. who, in turn, is directed to serve a copy of this Order upon each bank where Defendant Brooks maintains an account.
All disputes concerning this Order are hereby REFERRED to Magistrate Judge E. Thomas Boyle.
