A permanent injunction is issued once a lawsuit has been settled in court. It is a final court order that an entity or person must stop certain actions or activities. The plaintiff must show evidence that there is an underlying harm in the defendant’s actions. Only then can a permanent injunction be issued.
There are ways to stop a permanent injunction from being issued. Affirmative defenses may be raised in order to prevent an injunction. A qualified attorney can help in these matters. Among the defenses include laches, in pari delicto, freedom of speech, and criminal activity.
Laches can bar a party from seeking an injunction if they waited too long to bring the issue to court. These rules prevent legal claims that may no longer be relevant in the eyes of the court.
In pari delicto is Latin for “in equal fault.” This prevents a plaintiff who has participated in misbehavior recovering damages and losses due to that same misbehavior.
The First Amendment guarantees free speech and expression. Another defense is to claim that a permanent injunction would infringe upon those rights.
Criminal punishment is often a deterrent to crime. But in some cases, the court can deem that a sentence was not severe enough. If the criminal punishment was not sufficient or the defendant threatens to commit another crime, the court can issue a permanent injunction as well.
If you need help with the defense of an impending injunction, it is advised to seek legal counsel. An attorney can help with any proceedings against you. Even if you already have been issued a permanent injunction, a lawyer can file suit to nullify the injunction.
