Dear Customer, thank you for using our service. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I would like to assist you today.
I am sorry to learn of this situation. You have the right to appear and defend your interests at the Order to Show Cause hearing (even if you are in default, you have a right to defend against the disposal of your assets - even post-judgment debtors can object to levies etc.).
As there is no injunction at this time (the Court denied the TRO), your inventory is at your disposal. This of course does come with the threat of potential "fraudulent conveyance" where you try to move your product for less than fair market value in order to avoid paying your creditors (you do not necessarily have to pay off the plaintiff first, you can pay other creditors before the plaintiff unless the plaintiff has a secured interest in your inventory). And any unusually rapid liquidation in your assets will of course be used against you in the OSC to show why such an injunction should issue pending the remainder of the action. (These are just considerations, nothing more).
I hope the above is helpful, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to let me know and I will follow up quickly.
