WE HAVE TO STOP THEM! Restraining Orders in Business Cases


In many business disputes, it is simply not enough for a party to file a Complaint and await a trial, a year or more later, in the hopes of obtaining relief. When faced with an immediate, irreparable harm, a party’s only remedy is to seek an injunction from the court immediately upon the filing of a Complaint. A party seeking an injunction can request one by requesting both a Temporary Restraining Order (“TRO”) and a Preliminary Injunction. The TRO and the Preliminary Injunction are designed to stop the defendant from continuing with its improper activities, to preserve the status quo and to prevent further damage while the litigation is pending.
