Injunction

An injunction is a court order requiring a person to do or refrain from doing something.


There are three types of injunctions:


1. Temporary Restraining Orders
2. Preliminary Injunctions
3. Permanent Injunctions


A temporary injunction prohibits an action by a party to a lawsuit until there has been a trial or other court action.


Temporary Restraining Orders and Preliminary Injunctions can be issued by the judge early in a lawsuit to stop the defendant from continuing his or her allegedly harmful actions.


Permanent injunctions are issued as a final judgment in a case, where monetary damages will not suffice. Failure to comply with an injunction may result in being held in contempt of court, which in turn may result in either criminal or civil liability.


grantee

Grantee is the person to whom a grant is made. The one who receives the property from the grantor. With the typical deed, the buyer or recipient of any conveyance of property is normally called the grantee. Legal capacity and the grantee's signature are not required; however, the grantee must be alive when the deed is delivered.
