I have personally interacted with them.
This case is before me on Plaintiff's (United States) Motion to Hold Defendants (Austin Gary Cooper, Martha E. Cooper and Taking Back America, now known as The Ten Foundation) in Contempt, filed on December 11, 2003, for violating the Permanent Injunction Order I entered on November 20, 2003 after entry of default against Defendants.
In response to my Order to Show Cause why they should not be held in contempt for violating the Permanent Injunction Order, Defendants filed a non-responsive document on January 5, 2004, in which they did not deny the allegations in Plaintiff's Motion to Hold Defendants in Contempt, but rather challenged the authority and jurisdiction of this Court and these proceedings.
A hearing was held on Plaintiff's motion, pursuant to my minute order dated February 4, 2004, on March 12, 2004 at 3:00 p.m., in Courtroom 1, at 901 19th Street, Denver, Colorado. The hearing commenced at 3:12 p.m., and ended at 3:50 p.m., during which Plaintiff presented evidence in the form of testimony and exhibits. Defendants did not appear, nor did anyone on their behalf.
After consideration of the motion and the case file, and the evidence presented on March 12, 2004, I GRANT Plaintiffs' Motion to Hold Defendants in Contempt.
