LAS VEGAS — Counsel for Corbin Fisher and Oron.com have agreed to continue the temporary-restraining order against file-locker site Oron until Aug. 9.

In an order, U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro today consented to continue the next hearing on the copyright infringement case until that date.

"The parties mutually agree to these terms and postponements and believe that they will facilitate attempts to narrow the issues in this matter or to come to a mutally beneficial resolution to the dispute," an approved motion said.

According to documents filed with the court, Oron was offered $500,000 to settle claims prior to the suit; however Oron attorneys at the time declined the offer.

Gay adult company Corbin Fisher's copyright infringement suit is now valued at $34.8 million, plus attorneys fees and court costs.

Last month, Corbin Fisher sued operators of Oron.com, alleging they had knowledge of and induced the trading of 232 instances of pirated Corbin Fisher material.

PayPal, AlertPay and CCBill were ordered in the TRO to freeze Oron accounts; VeriSign also was ordered to freeze the Oron.com domain name from any transfers. In addition, Navarro ordered Oron to preserve and restore financial documents key to the case.

Corbin Fisher also served Oron with an injunction prohibiting disposal of assets in Hong Kong. In the Hong Kong order, Oron operators were enjoined from disposing or diminishing in value of its assets up to $3 million.

The file-locker site continues to be operating at press time, despite Oron operators' earlier contention that without additional funds beyond a court-allotted $100,000 that it couldn't carry the site through the first week of July without additional funds from its bank accounts, which all have been frozen.
