associated with them, leave the subject property immediately. The Court also
ordered that FVC have immediate, unfettered and unobstructed access to the

including an order restraining the AAFN and the Shabot from interfering with,
disrupting or hindering in any way, directly or indirectly, FVC's access to
the property and any work or exploration activities. Associate Chief Justice
