Maryland judge to Jon Gosselin: No media for now

A Montgomery County judge ruled in favor of the TLC cable channel Thursday and ordered Jon Gosselin to quit appearing in the media for now.

According to AP, Montgomery County Circuit Judge Michael D. Mason granted a preliminary injunction aimed at stopping media appearances by Gosselin pending a trial that is slated to begin April 19. TLC claims the appearances violate Gosselin's contract with the cable channel and its parent company, Discovery Communications, of Silver Spring.

The ruling came after several hours of testimony Thursday. Gosselin did not appear in court, and his attorneys did not present any evidence, according to the Associated Press.

Here's a bite from the AP report:

An extensive blow by blow of the day's events in Montgomery County Court can be found in the comments from Kippie in response to this earlier post.

What matters most about this ruling is how much leverage it will give TLC over Jon. If he is afraid that he will lose the case altogether in April, he could cave fast and give Kate and TLC the okay to start filming with the kids again.

This is an ugly and pathetic story, isn't it? And what do you think of the the legal advice Jon has been receiving?
