Rule 65. Injunctions

Advisory Commission Comments to Rules 65.01-65.07

Advisory Commission Comments

The distinctions made in this Rule between restraining orders, temporary injunctions and permanent injunctions have been made in practice by some trial judges and have not been made by others. The Committee felt that uniformity in the handling of these matters was desirable. It was recognized that in the handling of domestic relations cases, some departure from the handling suggested by these rules might be necessary, and the exception stated in Rule 65.07 was made accordingly.

Advisory Commission Comment [2009]

Rule 65.03(1) is rewritten to require in most instances notice to the adverse party before the court issues a temporary restraining order.

See Rule 65.07 on domestic relations cases.
