Recording Superstar Michael Jackson Wins Restraining Order Against Henry V. Vaccaro. 20-04-'04

Washington, D.C. ... On Monday, March 22, 2004, Recording Superstar Michael Jackson, through his Civil attorney, Brian G. Wolf, Esquire, filed an action in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, to stop Henry V. Vaccaro, a New Jersey businessman, from selling personal property of Mr. Jackson's, which Vaccaro claims is in his possession.

The Court issued a broad temporary restraining order last week in favor of Michael Jackson and against Henry Vaccaro and each and all of his agents, employees and attorneys. Among other things, the restraining order enjoins and prevents Vaccaro (1) from transferring possession of any property of Mr. Jackson’s to any person, firm or entity, (2) from making any use of Mr. Jackson’s name, photograph or likeness in connection with any website owned or operated by defendants, and (3) from selling, offering to sell, transferring, disposing, or encumbering any property of Mr. Jackson’s. The restraining order also requires Vaccaro to remove all references to Mr. Jackson’s name, identity, and photograph from any web site owned or operated by defendants.

Says Brian G. Wolf, Esquire, “I am pleased with the Court Order, and intend to vigorously seek the return of his personal property from Vaccaro and any other persons or entities who might have received possession of his property from Vaccaro.”
