An emergency remedy that prevents some action for a brief period of time. The court will issue a TRO only in exceptional circumstances, such as when immediate or irreparable damage might result otherwise.
A legal order issued by a judge on behalf of a person who has claimed to have been harassed or injured by another person. It forbids further harassment or injury by the offender named in the offended person's complaint. If a TRO is issued, the court also hears the alleged offender's statement in a second session. Based on this hearing the court can decide to make the TRO permanent, and may then issue an injunction against any further harassment or injury to the plaintiff. Failure to comply with a TRO or an injunction can result in arrest of the offender.
A judicial order which is granted by a judge of the Superior Court. This order temporarily prohibits the trustee from proceeding with any further action under a specific foreclosure file until a trial is held or settlement reached. A TRO is effective, generally, for a 21 day time period or until a hearing is held and the judge decides whether a preliminary injunction will be granted or denied.
Restraining and/or protective orders are examples of orders issued by a court restraining the conduct of an individual and protecting a victim from the activities of an abusive person.
Judge's order forbidding certain actions until a full hearing can be held to determine whether injunction should be issued. Often referred to as TRO. Compare preliminary injunction.
A court order that forbids or requires action until the court may hold a hearing. Usually of a very short duration, the temporary restraining order should be distinguished from a temporary injunction.
Akin to a preliminary injunction, it is a judge's short-term order forbidding certain actions until a full hearing can be conducted. Often referred to as TRO.
An order of the court prohibiting the performance of an activity likely to result in irreparable harm. In a criminal forfeiture case, the issuance of a TRO restrains, prohibits, and enjoins a person from attempting or completing any action that would affect the marketability or value of the property, such as transferring or selling it. A TRO is of short duration, usually lasting only 10 days, unless extended by the court. (See 21 U.S.C. 853 and Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 65.)
A court order issued on a temporary basis in an emergency situation, until the arguments and evidence can be heard by the court and the appropriate action in the matter determined.
Also called â€œProtective Order.â€ An order of the court prohibiting a party from acting or not acting. Examples of prohibited acts include threatening, harassing, or beating the other spouse or the children, selling personal property, or withdrawing and spending money from accounts.
Prohibits a person from an action, which is likely to cause irreparable harm. This differs from an injunction in that it may be granted immediately, without notice to the opposing party and without a hearing. It is intended to last until a hearing can be held.
A judge's order forbidding certain actions until a full hearing can be held. Usually of short duration. Often referred to as a TRO.
An emergency remedy of brief duration issued by a court only in exceptional circumstances, usually when immediate or irreparable damages or loss might result before the opposition could take action.
A court order that is issued to preserve the status quo while a partyâ€(tm)s request for an injunction is considered by the court.
An order of the court prohibiting a party from acting - for example, threatening, harassing, or physically abusing the other spouse and/or the children; selling personal property; taking money out of accounts; denying the other spouse a motor vehicle.
Lawsuit seeking the court to require a party to refrain from doing or continuing to do a particular act or activity.
A short-term order, issued by a judge, which prevents one party from acting in a way that could irreparably harm another before a hearing can be held. (Wex)
A court command that freezes the status quo for a short period of time until other legal relief is awarded or a settlement between the litigants can be reached.
An order to do or not do something until a more complete hearing is held, usually within 10 days, with both parties present. At that time, a preliminary injunction may be granted until there is a hearing for a permanent injunction.
An order that tells one person to stop harassing or harming another, issued after the aggrieved party appears before a judge. Once the TRO is issued, the court holds a second hearing where the other side can tell his story and the court can decide whether to make the TRO permanent by issuing an injunction. Although a TRO will often not stop an enraged spouse from acting violently, the police are more willing to intervene if the abused spouse has a TRO.
