Temporary Restraining Orders and Injunctions

Print Guideline

In most instances, the Court requires that an ex parte motion for a temporary restraining order be served on the opposing party. The Court will attempt to hold a telephone conference within a day or two if service is effectuated. In truly extraordinary circumstances, the Court may sign the proposed order without notice to the other party.

On the other hand, a motion for preliminary injunction will not be treated as requiring an expedited response from the Court unless the moving party requests expedited consideration, and sets forth compelling reasons for doing so.
