Temporary Restraining Order and Injunctions

Print Guideline

The Court will set a time schedule for motion and briefing requirements relating to requests for temporary restraining orders and preliminary injunctions which is typically less than that prescribed by Local Rule 7.1. In addition to the requirements of Local Rule 65.1, the Court requires that all temporary restraining orders, including those considered ex parte, require some notice to the opposing party and an opportunity for the Court to hear both sides unless the moving party can demonstrate good cause for failing to give notice to the opposing party. The Court rarely grants a temporary restraining order without notice to the opposing party.

Parties should notify the Case Manager by telephone upon filing a motion for a temporary restraining order or preliminary injunction. The Court will typically hold a status conference soon after receiving such a motion to arrange a briefing schedule and hearing date.
