U.S. Philips Corp. v. KBC Bank N.V., No. 08-56296

In plaintiff's appeal from the district court's order granting movant-bank's motion to modify a preliminary injunction freezing the assets of the underlying defendants, the order is vacated where the temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction entered by the district court dissolved when the default judgment issued, and thus the district court's subsequent modification order was void ab initio.
