COURT ISSUES CIVIL ORDER REQUIRING THE TUCK BOX TO STOP OFFERING DINE-IN SERVICE, AND COMPLY WITH SOCIAL DISTANCING AND FACE COVERING REQUIREMENTS

Contact: Emily Hickok, Deputy District Attorney (831) 647-7710

Post Date:05/21/2020 4:30 PM

Monterey County District Attorney Jeannine M. Pacioni announced today that Judge Villarreal of the Superior Court of California, County of Monterey has issued a temporary restraining order against The Tuck Box restaurant and its owner, Jeffrey Le Towt (collectively “The Tuck Box”). The order requires, among other things, that The Tuck Box stop offering dine-in service until dine-in service is authorized by the Health Officer, and follow social distancing and face covering requirements. 

The temporary restraining order will be in effect until the Court rules on a motion for a preliminary injunction, which is scheduled for June 5, 2020, in Department 14 of the Monterey County Superior Court. 

The District Attorney’s Office sought this temporary restraining order from the Court in connection with its civil unfair competition action against The Tuck Box. This action seeks civil penalties and injunctive relief against The Tuck Box for the unfair business advantage it has obtained by violating the State and County emergency health orders. The civil action seeks penalties in an amount at least equal to The Tuck Box’s revenues during the time period it was prohibited from allowing dine-in service, so that The Tuck Box does not unfairly profit from its violations of the emergency health orders.
