Injunctive Relief

Sometimes monetary damage is insufficient to compensate you for your losses. After all, the most valuable things in life are priceless. When you have suffered, or are about to suffer, a loss for which money cannot compensate, you may need to request injunctive relief in Florida. Injunctive relief is a court order asking someone to do something or forbidding some act. Common examples of injunctions include:
  • Prohibitions against creating nuisances
  • Preventing Irreparable breach of contracts
  • Enforcing non-competition agreements
  • Enforcing non-disclosure clauses
  • Forcing the return of a unique possession

The three main types of injunctive relief are temporary restraining orders, preliminary injunctions, and permanent injunctions. A temporary restraining order is a short-term injunction issued before a formal court hearing. These are usually issued when there is a danger that a delay in issuing an injunction will cause irreparable harm. A preliminary injunction, meanwhile, is a court order prohibiting a party or forcing a party from doing something in dispute until there is a final court judgment. Finally, a permanent injunction is a court order that a party ceases certain activities permanently or performs certain acts.

Overview of Injunctive Relief

Courts can provide two types of relief when someone suffers damages: equitable relief and legal relief (also referred to as equitable remedies and legal remedies). One specific kind of equitable relief is “injunctive relief.” Injunctive relief occurs whenever a court orders a person or entity to either perform a specific action or to refrain from performing an action. Injunctive relief is sometimes necessary when a person’s actions are causing harm or are about to cause harm. Injunctive relief can be used both to prevent future harm and to stop current harm from continuing unabated.

Here are a few common situations in which injunctive relief may be necessary:

  • You need to stop a property nuisance
  • You need to prevent a breach of contract
  • You need to enforce a non-compete agreement
  • You need to enforce a non-disclosure agreement
  • You need a certain item returned (i.e. a work of art)

Three Types of Injunctive Relief

There are three types of injunctive relief:

(1) temporary restraining orders

(2) preliminary injunctions

(3) permanent injunctions.

A temporary restraining order is, by definition, a short-term injunction which is used prior to a formal hearing on a certain matter. The logic behind such orders is that failing to issue an injunction would likely lead to irreparable or significant property damage.

A preliminary injunction can be thought of as a slightly more substantial injunction. This injunction forbids a person or entity from engaging in certain behavior while a dispute is still being settled in court. This preliminary order stays in place until a final court judgment is declared. A permanent injunction is the most serious type of injunctive relief. This type of order permanently forbids a person or entity from engaging in a certain type of behavior.
