There are special circumstances where the court will grant an injunction, sometimes at very short notice, to protect a person’s legal rights. Injunctions preventing a person or company from doing something are called prohibitory injunctions. The court may even grant an injunction ordering a person or company to do something and this is called a mandatory injunction. Mandatory injunctions are less common. Injunctions can be interim pending the final resolution of a legal dispute. They become final after the matter has been determined by the court.
