OPINION AND ORDER

JED S. RAKOFF, UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE

On July 31, 2003, this Court awarded plaintiff Motorola Credit Solutions f/k/a Motorola Credit Corporation (" Motorola" ) damages in excess of $2 billion against defendants Kemal Uzan, Murat Hakan Uzan, Cem Cengiz Uzan, Melahat Uzan, Aysegul Akay, and Antonio Luna Betancourt (the " Uzans" ), based on the Uzans' fraudulent diversion to their own purposes of loans of this magnitude made by Motorola to Telsim, a Turkish telecommunications company owned in large part by the Uzans. See Opinion and Order, No. 02-cv-666, ECF No. 453 (S.D.N.Y. July 31, 2003). In June 2006, Motorola obtained an additional judgment of $1 billion in punitive damages. See Order, No. 02-cv-666, ECF No. 675 (S.D.N.Y. June 15, 2006). Motorola has been trying to collect its judgment ever since, but the Uzans -- most of whom are fugitives from criminal indictments in Turkey brought as a result of a separate fraud -- have evaded payment, not least by utilizing an international web of proxies and shells to hide their assets and evade payment. As a result, the Court, in November 2012, permitted Motorola to serve ex parte discovery requests on third parties to gather information about " Defendants' and/or their agents' assets or whereabouts."
