Email I received.
naaip.org/judge-order-6-11-2017.pdf is a preliminary decision by a the Federal Judge in the case of:
COMPULIFE SOFTWARE, INC., Plaintiff, v. MOSES NEWMAN et al
You recall the letters, emails and phone calls from over two years ago from Robert Barney calling NAAIP "pirates" and threatening you with a lawsuit.
I knew that the claims and threats by Robert Barney were bogus, considering that I built the system and I am a competent computer programmer.
In any case, I was dumbfounded that Robert Barney actually filed a lawsuit against myself and NAAIP's owner.
The decision by the judge was on a Motion for Preliminary Injunction by the Plaintiff to shut down NAAIP and it's free term life quote engine. The basis of the Judge's decision was 100% based on Robert Barney's words. Robert Barney was deposed in late 2016 in a case that did not involve me or NAAIP's owner and was based on Robert Barney's words at the hearing itself. NAAIP's owner nor myself were not at the hearing. Our attorney represented us.
In reading the Judge's decision, the key point is that the Judge made a statement of fact - that Robert Barney's company was not harmed, was not damaged and his company has taken actions to prevent future harm.
The obvious question is why would anyone initiate a Federal Lawsuit under such circumstances?
Last week I was deposed for over eight hours in Miami, Florida. As well, Robert Barney, who represented his company as the most knowledgeable on the programming issues on hand, was deposed for a few hours by my attorney.
To cut to the chase, things went well.
How does this affect you?
Quite a few NAAIP agents were harmed by Robert Barney's threats of legal action. I, personally, had learned that software piracy carries a five year prison term.
