Default Law terms you always heard but never knew what they meant

I'm hoping our buddy DangerDan can shed some light on these matters for us.

My Unknown Law Term is "Injunction"

Wiki Says:
An injunction is an equitable remedy in the form of a court order, whereby a party is required to do, or to refrain from doing, certain acts. The party that fails to adhere to the injunction faces civil or criminal penalties and may have to pay damages or accept sanctions for failing to follow the court's order. In some cases, breaches of injunctions are considered serious criminal offences that merit arrest and possible prison sentences.

At the core of injunctive relief is a recognition that monetary damages cannot solve all problems. An injunction may be permanent or it may be temporary. A preliminary injunction, or an interlocutory injunction, is a provisional remedy granted to restrain activity on a temporary basis until the court can make a final decision after trial. It is usually necessary to prove the high likelihood of success upon the merits of one's case and a likelihood of irreparable harm in the absence of a preliminary injunction before such an injunction may be granted; otherwise the party may have to wait for trial to obtain a permanent injunction.

Got any examples Dan?

Feel free to add your own terms and we can do internet research and such if Dan prefers not to bring his work home :) Any other lawyers in the house?

I'll be happy to explain. I'll just need a small retainer first.

Generally when people file lawsuits, they want to recover some amount of money. Ex: I got in a car accident so give me some money. Injunctions are a form of relief you can request from a court when you cannot be compensated by money alone.

If a court enters an injunction, the Court is telling someone or a business, etc., that it must do something or must refrain from doing something. Here are some examples where a court might enter an injunction.

Ex. 1: A factory is discharging illegal waste into the sewer line. The local government could have the court enter an injunction from discharging waste.

Ex. 2: If domestic suits (family law), Courts will sometimes enter a special form of injunction called a temporary restraining order forbidding the two sides from harassing each other.

Ex. 3: Courts also routinely enter injunctions while lawsuits are pending. An example that is used quite often is as follows: My neighbor and I have a dispute regarding who owns a piece of land with 100 year old oak trees between our two houses. My neighbor wants to cut the trees down, but I think I own the land and I want the trees to stay. A Court would likely enter an injunction preventing my neighbor from cutting the trees down until it can be determined who the actual owner is.

This is actually a great example. Injunctions are issued when a person cannot be compensated by money. Obviously, no amount of money could replace DangerDan.
