What is an Injunction?
An injunction is judicial remedy, or a court order, that requires a party to do and refrain from conducting specific acts. Were the party to ignore or fail to adhere to the injunction, penalties include imprisonment, fines, or held in contempt of court.
Types of Injunctions
In business, injunctions are given when one business feels another is infringing upon them through services, defamation, or patent violation. There are two types of injunctions that a court will grant. A preliminary injunction is given before the court date, and it rare to receive. Or a Permanent injunction that is given after trial. In order to be granted either you must prove irreparable injury that does not have a satisfactory remedy, the balance of hardship cuts strongly against giving an injunction, and it does not disserve public interest.
