She ordered Moughni to turn over a list of those who posted statements about the case, those who “liked” his post and all information in each response, including names and contact information.

Macdonald also said she reserves the right to refer Moughni to the Attorney Grievance Commission of Michigan and require him to pay fees to attorneys on both sides.

She ruled that statements about the preliminary settlement were “materially false, deceptive and misleading” and he engaged in “deliberate and abusive conduct which has created a likelihood of confusion of class members, adversely has effected (sic) the administration of justice and had undermined this court’s responsibility and authority to protect class members from such abuses.”

Moughni was prohibited from communicating with class-action lawsuit members and the media about the case without advance approval in writing by Macdonald and the plantiffs’ attorneys, Jaafer & Mahdi Law Group P.C. of Dearborn.
