temporary injunction

An injunction pendente lite or provisional injunction which is to operate pending a hearing of the suit on its merits, or until the final decree of the court shall have been entered. An order issued, not in pursuance of the final determination of any controverted right, but merely to prevent a threatened wrong, or any further perpetration of injury, or the doing of any act thereafter whereby the right to a thing may be embarrassed or endangered, or whereby its value may be materially lessened or the thing itself totally lost, and by such prevention to maintain things in the condition in which they are at the time, and protect the property or rights involved from further injury until the issues and equities can be determined after a full examination and hearing. 28 Am J Rev ed Inj § 12. See restraining order.
