Thank you ALL for your support during this very difficult time. We received some excellent news late last Friday, with the judge denying the request for preliminary injunction against me.

You can read the full decision at the following link: https://www.scribd.com/document/391595142/Injunction-MDPL-v-Ciraldo-Signed-Order

Once again, I want to thank you all for helping to support our pursuit of justice. While we're not at the complete finish line, I believe we are very close. And, we could not have done it without your support!

Thanks again,
- Daniel

Update: September 19th

Dear Friends:

We are nearing the end of the preliminary injunction hearings, having had more than one dozen hearings at the historic Miami-Dade Courthouse in downtown Miami. Although we are hoping for a decision soon, the case is on pause as one of the plaintiffs has to travel out of town for a family emergency.

On August 19th, we filed an emergency petition for writ of quo warranto, essentially asking the court to oust the officers who are claiming to be running the MDPL post-election. You can view our filing here: http://bit.ly/2BMj3Kp

We are in the process of consolidating the two cases together in order to have finality to the election issues which have plagued the organization since June.

Right now we need more funds to reimburse our attorney for his very hard work - please help us reach our $35k goal. I'm hoping to raise $5k this week to make a payment.

I look forward to putting this lawsuit behind us and continuing MDPL's momentum in a positive, transparent, accountable, and inclusive fashion.

Thank you all!
- Daniel

Dear friends: Thank you SO MUCH for your generous contributions to my legal defense fund.

We are still in the preliminary injunction phase, however we believe this will wrap up this week. Right now, we have another $15k to raise to pay our legal defense fees.

On August 19th, we filed an emergency petition for writ of quo warranto. You can view our filing here: http://bit.ly/2BMj3Kp

Today, we will be filing our written response to the underlying complaint. While I cannot share specifics on a public page, I can say that we are confident in our arguments.

I appreciate your support - and if you are able to donate another time, it would be much appreciated - please help us reach our $30k goal.

I look forward to putting this lawsuit behind us and continuing MDPL's momentum in a positive, transparent, accountable, and inclusive fashion.

Thank you all!
