VPX, the parent company of energy drink maker Bang Energy, is slated for auction through U.S. Bankruptcy Court. But they are having problems getting the information they need to make it happen.

The court filing claims the action is necessary because the Owocs refuse to cooperate with the court orders to return all assets, property, devices, and documents from Bang, Inc.  

VPX is frustrated with the Owocs’ claims that they have nothing that belongs to the company. Meanwhile, they are trying to package the company for a court-approved sale.
