Temporary Restraining Orders and Injunctions

Print Guideline

If necessary, the Court will set a time schedule for motion and briefing requirements relating to requests for temporary restraining orders and preliminary injunctions which is less than prescribed by  E.D. Mich. LR 7.1. In addition to the requirements of E.D. Mich. LR 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. Usually, the Court will schedule a conference before hearing any request for TRO or preliminary injunction.
