Temporary Restraining Orders and Preliminary Injunctions

The court will rarely consider ex parte requests for temporary restraining orders. In most such cases, notice to and consultation with opposing counsel, as appropriate, will be required. The court strongly encourages parties to confer ahead of any preliminary injunction hearing in an attempt to reach an agreement with respect to the injunction.
