Injunctions

The most commonly sought and awarded remedy is compensation; however, in some circumstances, the payment of money may not be adequate to compensate the affected party. Judges have a broad discretion to award various remedies to parties in a lawsuit, including an injunction. Injunctions can stop a party from doing something or require a party to do something. There are three types of injunctions:

  1. Interlocutory injunction: an interlocutory injunction is obtained after the lawsuit has started but before trial and lasts for a temporary period.
  2. Interim injunction: an interim injunction is brought on an urgent basis but only lasts up to 14 days, and is usually brought without notice to the offending party.
  3. Permanent injunction: a permanent injunction is granted after trial and lasts indefinitely.

The main difference between the three types of injunctions is when and how they are brought as well as how long they last.
