What is an Injunction?

A court injunction is a judicial order that requires a person to do or stop doing something.

Plaintiffs can apply for a court injunction which requests the judge to prohibit the defendant from engaging or carrying out a specific act. Injunctions can also order the defendant to stop doing something that is damaging to the plaintiff.

There are three types of injunctions:

  • Temporary injunctions: Commonly known as a temporary restraining order or TRO. These are meant to be a short-term measure until something more long-lasting can be issued (such as a preliminary injunction).
  • Preliminary injunctions: Issued at the beginning of a lawsuit to prevent certain conduct, and remain in effect during a pending court case. These can sometimes turn into permanent injunctions.
  • Permanent injunctions: Issued as final judgements in a case, and preserve conduct permanently.

Before an injunction can be granted, the court might require the plaintiff to purchase an Injunction Bond.
