Hello Fellow NADR Member,

For your information, we have attached a copy of a PRELIMINARY INJUNCTION entered by the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas last Friday pertaining to DNA Solutions, Inc. This is a federal court order. The order prohibits DNA Solutions, Inc., its officers, agents, representative, employees and successors, and all other persons in active concert and participation with it, as follows:

It is therefore ORDERED that Plaintiff North American Deer Registry, Inc.’ Application for Preliminary Injunction (Dkt. #17) is herebyGRANTED.

It is further ORDERED that DNA Solutions, Inc., its officers, agents, representative, employees and successors, and all other persons in active concert and participation with it, are hereby enjoined from engaging in the following acts:

a) DNAS shall not use, offer to use, alter, delete, modify, disclose, or permit access to the Registry, the Biological Materials, Genetic Information, Genotype Analysis Data, Registration Data, Membership Directory, or any other information provided by NADR or its members to DNAS or any copy of the same (electronic, paper, or otherwise) or information derived from such information for any purpose.

b) DNAS shall not use, offer to use, or disclose to any other entity or individual any of the content of the Registry or any other information it gained form NADR and/or NADR members in the performance of any of its prior dealings with NADR (“Confidential Information”), until further order of the Court. Such Confidential Information shall include, but not be limited to, the identity and contact information of persons and organizations who previously did business with DNAS under agreements with NADR.

c) DNAS shall not represent in commerce that it owns or has the right to disclose or access or offer access for commercial purposes, a database containing deer genetic profiles if any of such deer genetic profiles contained therein were provided by NADR, or  member of NADR.

d) DNAS shall not use the information maintained in the Registry, Biological Materials, Genetic Information, Genotype Analysis Data, Registration Data, Membership Directory, or any other information provided by NADR or its members to DNAS to build or operate a registry.

Please notify us at NADR immediately if you are contacted by DNA Solutions, or anyone acting on its behalf, or if you are aware that DNA Solutions is continuing to offer or allow comparisons to the genetic information and analysis included and previously included in the NADR Registry.

We are looking forward to a great summer 2017 as we continue to improve and expand the genetic markers and related analysis associated with the samples you entrust to NADR.   Thank you for your continuing support of the NADR Registry.
