A complete list of the legal terms and definitions every attorney, paralegal, and law student needs to know.
A preliminary injunction is a temporary order by the court to preserve the “status quo ante” (the situation prior to the suit) where the party seeking the injunction can demonstrate that he or she will suffer irreparable harm unless the injunction is issued. In a hearing the judge will consider the extent of the potential irreparable harm, each party’s likelihood of prevailing at trial, and any other interests that would be affected by the preliminary injunction.
