ANN J. BROWN, District Judge.
This matter came before the Court on August 15, 2013, on Plaintiffs' motion for a Temporary Restraining Order. Plaintiffs appeared through their attorney, Daniel E. Thenell, Defendant appeared telephonically without counsel, and Linda Lee Petersen appeared through her attorneys Arthur Knauss and Bradley Lechman-Su.

2. Defendant Robert Gary Petersen is currently incarcerated with the Oregon Department of Corrections at the Two Rivers Correctional Institution in Umatilla County, Oregon, having been sentenced to seven years for Sexual Abuse I and Invasion of Privacy, and that Plaintiffs, therefore, are likely to prevail on the merits of this action;
3. There is good cause to believe that immediate and irreparable damage to the Court's ability to grant effective final relief in the form of monetary restitution will occur from the sale, transfer, or other disposition or concealment by Defendant of his assets, unless Defendant is immediately restrained and enjoined by Order of this Court; and
4. That the security bond is waived due to no likelihood of harm to Defendant, and Plaintiffs' likelihood of success on the merits.

IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Defendant and Attorney in Fact shall hereby comply with the terms and conditions of the temporary restraining order granted by the Clackamas County Circuit Court, dated May 22, 2013, Case No. DRI3050728, attached herein as Exhibit A.

b. owned or controlled by the Attorney in Fact; and
