Frankfurt Court Enjoins Link on Twitter

CK - Washington.   A German TRO in the matter 3-08 O 46/10 before the Frankfurt District Court orders a party to cease providing a link in that party's Twitter messages. The court received the petition on April 15, 2010 and decided on April 20, 2010.

Unfortunately, the preliminary measure comes with a heavily redacted order from which the facts are not easily discerned. The sanction for violations is a fine of 250,000 Euros.

The objectionable link appears to relate to commercial or anti-competitive conduct. The link leads to statements on a website that belongs to neither of the parties.
