Legal Injunction Questions

What is an injunction? An injunction is a legal order from a court that either forces an individual to do something or prohibits an individual from doing something. Legal injunctions may be issued against people for different reasons. It is important for individuals to know in what situations they can file an injunction against someone else or what can they do if they have an injunction order against them. Given below are common questions about legal injunction that are answered by Experts.

Can an individual ask a court to issue an injunction against a school for wrongly accusing his/her child and holding the minor child without contacting him/her?

An individual may be able to request a court to issue a legal injunction against a school to change his/her child’s record if the school wrongly accused him/her and held the minor child in school without informing the individual. The individual may also sue the school for false imprisonment and negligence if they suspend the child based on improper information.

Can an individual file an injunction against someone who has been following him/her with a camera?

An individual may file an injunction in a civil court against someone who has been following him/her with a camera if the individual has enough evidence to prove this. The court injunction will prohibit the person from following the individual. If the person continues to follow the individual in spite of the injunction, he/she may also get arrested for violation of the injunction order.

Can an individual stop a film making company from making a documentary of the tragic death of his/her mother?

If the individual wants to stop a film making company from making a documentary of the tragic death of his/her mother, he/she may issue a legal injunction against the company prohibiting them from using the footage of his/her mother. He/she may also sue the film making company for public disclosure of private facts and misappropriation of image. He may also sue for monitory damages.

Can a person file an injunction against a competitor for spreading false information about him/her among his/her clients?

If the competitor of an individual spreads false information about him/her among his/her clients, it would be considered tortuous interference with the contract. In such a situation, the individual may file an injunction against the competitor stopping him/her from talking about the individual to his/her clients. The individual may also sue the competitor for libel and slander.

What can a plaintiff in a default judgment do if the defendant has made false statements against him/her?

If the defendant of a default judgment has made false statements against the plaintiff, he/she may file a motion for a default judgment and an injunction. The first part of the motion may be for the default judgment and the second part of the motion may be for the injunction. The injunction order may ask the defendant to give a publicized reaction of his/her statements against the plaintiff. The injunction may ask the defendant to take back the statements that he/she made against the plaintiff.

Can an individual file an injunction against his/her doctor if he/she does not get his/her medical records from the doctor even after sending a formal letter requesting the records?

If an individual does not get his/her medical records from a doctor even after sending him/her a formal letter requesting the records, he/she may send the doctor a letter stating that he/she would get a court injunction against the doctor forcing him/her to give the medical records. This letter may have to be signed by a local attorney. If the doctor still does not give the medical records, the individual may hire a health care lawyer and file an injunction against the doctor.

An individual can get frustrated and helpless if he/she does not know how to prevent someone from causing harm to him/her? Knowing what a legal injunction is and how it can be issued against someone will help individuals know if they are in a situation to file an injunction order against someone or not. It will also help them take the right steps towards protecting themselves in a difficult and harmful situation.

Recent Injunction Questions

  • Hello, I have a multiple part question. Im filing a petition

    Hello,
    I have a multiple part question. I'm filing a petition for damages and the defendants are
    doing things to hurt me and I do have concerns after what has already happened to me.
    1. can I ask for some sort of protective services until the injunction is issued?
    2. does the actual petition need to be notarized, as I am also attaching a sworn affidavit which is notarized?
    3. there is a space to write in a request for damages and after the judge reads all the evidence I've presented can he determine the actual damage amount or do we have to order a hearing to come to agreed upon terms? Is the hearing standard practice?
  • Hello, please tell me what the Texas Civil Practice & Remedies

    Hello, please tell me what the Texas Civil Practice & Remedies Code or Injunction on Municipality to Stop Specific Action. Also where I may obtain a form for this.
  • I am a quadriplegic who is being harassed by a former aide.

    I am a quadriplegic who is being harassed by a former aide. This aide also currently works for my doctor. Six months ago, this aide stole my pain medication and then started telling the clinic that I was sexually harassing her. I found out about my privacy being violated (HIPAA) because another employee asked another aide who also works for me if she felt threatened for me being a sexual predator! I called the clinic's manager and reported my medicine being stolen and that my privacy was being violated but they did nothing about it other than make a policy to no longer work with clients outside of the clinic. Two weeks later, this aide then brought me to court for an injunction against stalking for contacting her boss and because i bought this aide unsolicited gifts such as filling her gas tank and taking her and her family (husband and three kids) to dinner for her birthday, the judge granted the injunction. Last week, the aide brought me back to court claiming I violated the injunction because I was seeing my doctor (with an appointment). She claimed I was stalking her in the parking lot and still calling her job (untrue). My question is this: Do I have a claim against the clinic this aide works for? The aide is taking me to court and harassing me for seeing my doctor. The judge did write a special provision that I could see my doctor as long as I had an appointment. I know this aide is going to keep harassing me because this doctor is a specialty doctor I need with my medical issues. I cannot report her actions to the clinic because of my injunction. Please help!
