What if you are an employer and you shared confidential information, such as client lists with an employee and now the employee is contacting your clients and starting up a competitive business?  What if a competitor named their business the same or similar name of your business?  What if you find out that a lessee is absconding with your vehicles that you leased to them?  In these situations, you need immediate relief, so what can you do?  You can file a temporary restraining order and ask the Court to enter an order stopping that person from doing whatever it is that is harming you now until you can have a full hearing on the matter.  A temporary restraining order (“TRO”) is an equitable remedy that is issued in exceptional and emergency situations when it is necessary to preserve the status quo until the court has an opportunity to rule on a motion for preliminary injunction.  This podcast with Jennifer Burt of Lavelle Law will explore temporary restraining orders and how you can utilize them.
