Former "Shark Tank" participants are the targets of Daymond John's temporary restraining order request.

Celebrity investor Daymond John of "Shark Tank" is requesting a preliminary injunction and a temporary restraining order against Al "Bubba" Baker, 

his daughter Brittani, and his wife, Sabrina. John aimed to prevent the family from going on the record in the wake of their appearance on 

the ABC reality TV program regarding what they claim to have been their "nightmare" experience.

The Bakers were the focus of a recent L.A. Times article in which they claimed that John and a few of his friends and business colleagues had

misled them, attempted to take over their operation, and denied them the benefits of potentially profitable collaborations.

They questioned the commercial agreement they had with John and Rastelli Foods Group,

a meat producer hired to make their trademarked Bubba's Q Boneless Baby Back Ribs after they made an appearance on Season 5 of "Shark Tank."

Invoking jurisdictional concerns, a federal court in New Jersey last week dismissed the case without prejudice.
