    4 Month Jail Sentences for Ross Rodgers and Palma Rodgers

    The Ontario Superior Court of Justice recently imposed consecutive jail sentences of four months each against Ross Rodgers and Palma Rodgers of Barrie, Ontario, Canada, for contempt of Anton Piller (civil seizure) Orders granted in February 2010. The Rodgers are the parents of Steven Rodgers a.k.a. Tomico-ind, who also served four months in jail for contempt of Anton Piller Orders obtained by Bell TV, EchoStar, and NagraStar in 2008.
    Ross and Palma Rodgers refused to permit representatives of the Plaintiffs entry into their residence as required by the Orders. The Orders were granted to preserve evidence relevant to the Plaintiffs’ pending contempt motion against Steven Rodgers. The Court found that “Ross and Palma flatly refused to permit entry to the Rodgers Residence [and] they wilfully and deliberately chose to disobey the Anton Piller Orders.” The Court also found that the primary purpose of the Anton Piller Orders – the preservation of evidence – was frustrated by the Rodgers’ defiance, and the Rodgers displayed contemptuous attitudes. The Court concluded that “To permit Ross and Palma to blatantly defy the Anton Piller Orders – by denying access to the premises – without significant penalty would encourage pirates to ‘weigh up’ compliance with Court Orders against the penalty for contempt. If contempt is without meaningful consequence, disobedience of Court orders will result.”
