Case Date: 09/28/2010
Citation: Leor Expl. & Prod., LLC v. Aguiar, Nos. 09–60136–CIV, 09–60683–CIV, 2010 WL 3782195 (S.D. Fla. Sept. 28, 2010)
Court Type: Federal District
Court: Southern District of Florida (S.D. Fla.)
Judge: Federal District Judge: Patricia A. Seitz

This case arose out of a family business dispute. The issue concerns whether the Federal Magistrate Judge’s Report and Recommendation, recommending the granting of a Motion for Sanctions by the Leor Parties against Aguiar as well as a Motion to Hold Aguiar in Contempt, should be adopted.


The Court found that Aguiar violated the Magistrate’s witness tampering and intimidation orders, and was therefore in contempt of Court. The Court also found Aguiar acted in bad faith by hacking into Plaintiff Kaplan’s email, warranting appropriate sanctions.
