A US District Court for the Northern District of Illinois has just granted a temporary restraining order to freeze all US assets of Mt. Gox and its CEO Mark Karpeles as part of an effort to find out exactly what caused the Japan-based Bitcoin exchange to fall. Gox is based in Japan, it's unclear what assets there are to actually seize in the US, but the restraining order at least lets Greene's lawyers start the formal process of getting documents and information from the Bitcoin exchange.
