Plaintiffs City of Berkeley and Mayor and Members of the City Council of the
City of Berkeley have filed a motion for a temporary restraining order and preliminary
injunction, to enjoin defendants United States Postal Service, Patrick R. Donahoe, Tom A.
Samra, and Diana Alvarado from completing a sale of the Berkeley Post Office. According to
that motion, “the City believes that USPS will attempt to convey the Post Office property at any
moment,” even though USPS reportedly has not performed the reviews required by the National
Historic Preservation Act or the National Environmental Policy Act.
This order hereby ENJOINS the named defendants from completing the sale of the
Berkeley Post Office until a hearing on the motion for preliminary injunction can be conducted.
Plaintiffs must post a bond in the amount of $5,000 and serve all named defendants with the
complaint, summons, and all papers (including this order) by 10:00AM ON NOVEMBER 6, 2014.
The hearing on the motion for preliminary injunction will take place at 8:00AM ON NOVEMBER 10th, 2014.
