Injunctive Relief (Temporary Restraining Order, Preliminary Injunction And Permanent Injunction)

In Nevada, in order to obtain a temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction, or permanent injunction, generally, the following are considered by the courts:

1.         A party must demonstrate that it has a reasonable probability of success on the merits of its underlying claims;

2.         Without injunctive relief, plaintiff will suffer irreparable harm for which compensatory damages are inadequate;

3.         The court may weigh the public’s interest in seeing the harm stopped, as well as the relative hardships of the parties should the court take or refuse to take action; and

4.         The purpose of the restraining order/injunction is to preserve the status quo, or to “preserve a business or property interest.”  Buion v. Terra Mktg. of Nev., Inc., 90 Nev. 237, 240, 523 P.2d 847, 848 (1974).

5.         Imposition of a bond is required by NRCP 65(c).
