Temporary Restraining Orders and Preliminary Injunctions
If necessary, the Court will set a time schedule for briefing related to requests for temporary restraining orders and preliminary injunctions which is less than prescribed by Local Rule 7.1. In addition to the requirements of Fed.R.Civ.P. 65 and Local Rule 65.1, the Court requires that all applicants for a temporary restraining order attempt to notify the opposing party so that the Court has an opportunity to hear both sides unless the moving party can demonstrate good cause for failing to give notice to the opposing party. If practicable, the Court will schedule a conference before hearing any request for a temporary restraining order or preliminary injunction. Parties must notify the case manager by telephone upon filing an application for a temporary restraining order or preliminary injunction so that appropriate scheduling issues can be discussed.
