HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) – A Reno County judge has temporarily blocked a South Hutchinson business from reselling a pair of machines that purport to assist in body healing amid an ongoing legal dispute.

The Hutchinson News reports that the temporary restraining order issued last week also prohibits Greg Dovel and his company, Energy Genesis of Kansas, from revealing confidential information about the machines.

The order comes in a lawsuit filed by Beaver Creek LLC, which says it sold the machines to Dovel for $40,000 each. The suit alleges Dovel agreed to buy 12 machines and later indicated he would sell the two he had – and proprietary information – to a Beaver Creek competitor.

Dovel says he never agreed to buy more machines. He says he’s negotiating to settle the lawsuit.
