Interlocutory injunction or interim injunction

A court order to (usually) cease certain acts eg alleged infringing acts pending the trial of the action. Continue with rest of definition. In seeking this discretionary remedy it is vital that the plaintiff act quickly. Delay may foreclose any chance of obtaining an injunction.

To obtain a pre-trial injunction a plaintiff will need to satisfy the court that there is a serious question to be tried and that if the defendant is not stopped now the damage to the plaintiff’s business will be so great that there could be no adequate financial compensation.
