ABC Blocks

A court order prohibiting an action by a party to a lawsuit until there has been a trial or other court action. a temporary injunction differs from a “temporary restraining order” which is a short-term, stop-gap injunction issued pending a hearing, at which time a temporary injunction may be ordered to be in force until trial. the purpose of a temporary injunction is to maintain the status quo and prevent irreparable damage or change before the legal questions are determined. after the trial the court may issue a “permanent injunction” (making the temporary injunction a lasting rule) or “dissolve” (cancel) the temporary injunction.
