AGREED ORDER APPOINTING RECEIVER
S. THOMAS ANDERSON UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
THIS MATTER is before the Court on the Second Amended Complaint for Foreclosure, Appointment of a Receiver, and Injunctive Relief (the "Complaint") and accompanying Motion to Reappoint Receiver (the "Motion") filed by the plaintiff, ECP Commercial I LLC ("ECP"). It appears that due and sufficient notice of the Complaint and Motion have been given to all Defendants. Having read and considered the Complaint and the Motion, the arguments and statements of counsel having been presented and considered, and it appearing that venue and jurisdiction are proper in this Court and the relief requested is necessary to prevent irreparable harm and injury to ECP's rights and the Mortgaged Properties (defined below), and the rents and profits therefrom, as to which ECP has no adequate remedy at law, the Court hereby makes the following findings of fact and conclusions of law:
Findings of Fact
A. The proposed receivership is a receivership of the Mortgaged Properties (as defined below).
B. The proposed receiver, George E. Shoup, HI, ("Shoup") an employee of Development Specialists, Inc. ("DSI"), is experienced in the arenas of distressed property, business management and sales. Both Shoup and DSI, who Shoup intends to retain as a financial consultant in this matter, have no interests or connections with any Defendant.
Conclusions of Law
(i) The Court has jurisdiction over this matter and venue is proper, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1332 and 28 U.S.C. § 1391.
(ii) ECP has no adequate remedy at law to prevent potential irreparable harm and injury to its rights under the Loan Documents and with respect to the Mortgaged Properties (as defined in the Motion), and therefore, ECP is entitled to the relief requested in the Complaint and the Motion as hereinafter provided.
(iii) Adequate notice of the Motion and the relief requested by ECP has been given to all Defendants.
