OPINION UNDER SEAL

JED S. RAKOFF, United States District Judge.

On July 31, 2003, this Court awarded plaintiff Motorola Credit Corporation (" Motorola" ) damages in the amount of $2,132,896,906 against defendants Kemal Uzan, Murat Hakan Uzan, Cem Cengiz Uzan, Melahat Uzan, Aysegul Akay, and Antonio Luna Betancourt (the " Uzans" ), based on the Uzans' diversion of large loans made by plaintiffs to Telsim, a Turkish telecommunications company owned in large part by the Uzans.[1] Since that time, the Uzans - most of whom are fugitives from criminal indictments in Turkey brought as a result of a separate fraud - have failed to participate in this action or pay the judgment against them, and Motorola has engaged in a worldwide, decade-long hunt for the Uzans and their assets.

In response to Motorola's efforts to track down those concealed assets, on February 13, 2013, the Court issued an Order pursuant to Rules 65 and 69 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and N.Y.

Attached to the Court's Order is a list of " Uzan Proxies," defined as " entities or persons that serve as agents or instrumentalities of or are otherwise controlled, directly or indirectly, by the Uzans."
