What Does it All Mean?: GM Suing Online Sellers Case No. 22-cv-04031 Greer, Burns & Crain, Ltd. 

In short form, as one of the defendants in the GM lawsuit you should do one thing above all: RESPOND. We would love to tell you that you could just ignore this notice and continue with your business. However, we all know that is not possible at the moment. Mainly because what accompanies the lawsuit is a TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER (TRO). Oofa! 

You Should Respond to the Lawsuit to Get the Temporary Restraining Order Lifted 

The TRO is a serious roadblock to your success as an e-commerce seller. For example, it hinders your ability to touch the funds your online business has generated from the sale of GM products. Furthermore, it stops you from accessing the money you made from selling any other branded product. Consequently, you need to take action. Now, what precisely is that action?
