Joint Liability

ABC Blocks

A court-ordered act or prohibition against an act or condition which has been requested, and sometimes granted, in a petition to the court for an injunction. such an act is the use of judicial (court) authority to handle a problem and is not a judgment for money. whether the relief will be granted is usually argued by both sides in a hearing rather than in a full-scale trial, although sometimes it is part of a lawsuit for damages and/or contract performance. historically, the power to grant injunctive relief stems from english equity courts rather than damages from law courts.
