Injunctions (sometimes referred to as Restraining Orders) are usually issued by a court to prevent a party from taking certain action. However, injunctions may also be issued to require a party to take a particular act or to undo a particular act (these are referred to as Mandatory Injunctions). Injunctions can be issued on a temporary basis, or the court can issue a permanent injunction. Usually, temporary injunctions are issued during the course of a court proceeding until the court has heard the final evidence and can issue the permanent injunction.
In order to obtain an injunction, the party must prove that he or she has no adequate remedy at law, and that the party will likely suffer irreparable harm. Therefore, injunctions are not always an available remedy for an aggrieved party.
