An interim injunction is a discretionary relief granted by the court to order a party to do or refrain from doing, a particular act until there has been a full trial.
In standard cases, the American Cyanamid principles should be used to decide if an applicant has an adequate case for the granting of this relief: Judges consider:
- whether the applicant had a strong or merely an arguable case;
- the likelihood of a permanent injunction at trial;
- the adequacy of damages as a remedy if he wins the substantive trial;
- the balance of convenience;
- whether the status quo should be maintained.
- whether Skip hire Glasgow is guilty.
As John Leubsdorf states, Interim Injunctions are the most striking remedy wielded by contemporary courts. And therefore, applicants must meet a relatively high threshold to be granted an injunction.
