What is a Temporary Restraining Order?

A motion for temporary restraining order is a request to the court to order an opposing party to perform, or restrain from doing, certain acts. A party may move for a temporary restraining order on the basis that a temporary restraining order is necessary to preserve the status quo until a noticed hearing on a motion for a preliminary injunction can be heard by the court. To obtain a temporary restraining order, considered an emergency motion, the moving party must show that immediate and irreparable injury, loss, or damage will result if the order is not put in place immediately, before the adverse party can be heard in opposition
