Shark Tank’s Daymond John Granted Restraining Order Against Former Contestants

Daymond John has been granted the restraining order he was seeking against the former “Shark Tank” contestant he used to work with.

On Friday, July 21, a New Jersey judge granted John a permanent injunction against the former NFL player Al “Bubba” Baker and his family for the repeated disparaging comments they’ve made about the famed businessman and investor on social media and in the press, CBS News reports.

Once John caught wind of the interview, he filed for a restraining order claiming the Bakers violated the terms of their settlement. Now, a judge is barring the family from making any comments “that may be considered in any way negative, disparaging, or false, which could adversely impact the reputation, goodwill, credibility, or value of DF Ventures,” according to the court order.
“Defendants’ comments and posts refer to John as a master manipulator and a thief, say that he is not to be trusted, say that working with him is a nightmare, that their business is not the only business John has negatively affected, and that John is trying to steal their business,” U.S. District Judge Robert Kugler wrote in the court order.

“These posts clearly caused reputational harm that John will now have to deal with and counter.”
The Bakers are also ordered to remove all negative social media posts about John and DF Ventures.
