HELENA - State regulators are seeking a court order to prevent a Billings man, Tom Kennedy, from helping people buy lower-cost prescription drugs from Canada.

In January, District Judge Kathy Seeley of Helena found Kennedy in contempt for operating his business, Canadian Connection, in violation of a court 2004 court order. She fined Kennedy $4,000 and told him to shut down his business or face arrest.

On Monday an attorney for the state Board of Pharmacy, Mike Fanning, was back in court, seeking a permanent injunction against Kennedy. Fanning said Kennedy had not paid the $4,000 fine, and would not answer questions about his finances.

Kennedy told the court by telephone that he can't pay the fine.

Seeley told Fanning and Kennedy to submit arguments on the injunction in September and October. She also set a Dec. 4 trial date.
