Temporary Restraining Orders

The court rarely grants temporary restraining orders ex parte, generally requires notice to be provided and has found that many preliminary injunction requests have been agreed to before the time scheduled for a hearing. The court thus encourages notice and consultation among the parties to discuss possible resolution. The court issues a preliminary injunction scheduling order in anticipation of the hearing setting forth certain requirements similar to preparation for a non-jury trial.
