An injunction is a judicial order that prohibits an individual from starting or continuing a particular course of action that invades the legal right of another or forces a person to carry out a particular act.
Injunctive relief is an order from the court that restrains an individual or a whole organization from continuing an action. It is also possible the other way around that an injunction (judicial order) may also compel an identity to make a specific action.
Injunctive relief prevents or limits certain actions that cause damage or affect another entity. Injunctive relief is taken into action, especially when monetary compensation is not ample to correct one’s mistake.
There are two variables by which it can be categorized: the Effect and the Permanency.
It is often for settling a dispute such as breach of contract, bankruptcy, theft of clients, intellectual property infringement, its misuse, and others.
Injunctive relief is often with the major purpose of preventing any sort of harm from occurring to the victim party in the future. Even after the Injunctive Relief, if the offending party continues to perform the action, they are charged with heavy ransom or may be sentenced to jail.
