TROs and Preliminary Injunctions

Print Guideline

The Court strictly adheres to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 65 and Eastern District of Michigan Local Rule 65.1.

Parties should notify the case manager by telephone (313-234-5095) upon filing a motion for a temporary restraining order. The Court rarely grants a temporary restraining order without notice to the opposing party. See also Fed. R. Civ. P. 65(b)(1).

Parties should also notify the case manager by telephone upon filing of a motion for preliminary injunction. The Court will typically hold a status conference very soon after receiving notice of a preliminary injunction motion to arrange a briefing schedule and hearing date. The Court will then typically issue a scheduling order similar to the sample order below.
