Temporary Restraining Orders and Preliminary Injunctions

Print Guideline

The Court strictly adheres to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 65 and Local Rule 65.1. The Court rarely grants a temporary restraining order without notice to the opposing party.

Parties should notify the Case Manager by telephone (313-234-5113) upon filing a motion for a temporary restraining order or a motion for preliminary injunction. The Court will typically hold a status conference very soon after receiving such a motion to arrange a briefing schedule and hearing date. In the case of a motion for preliminary injunction, the Court will typically issue a scheduling order similar to the sample order below.
