Since there is an appeal, the judge's ruling might get overturned. Accordingly, that means the judge's ruling never was effective in the first place.
Which means this contract/trade restriction would be a penalty for nothing.
Also, what if Belkin doesn't come up with the money or down the line changes his mind? That probably won't happen, but if it does that means the Hawks suffer a penalty for nothing.
This part of the ruling is bad.
