List a few common injunctions. If you were a group leader, how might you explore these injunctions in your group? Describe some techniques for dealing with injunctions.

There are three types of injunction: permanent injunctions, preliminary injunctions, and temporary restraining orders. As a group leader, you can have your group act out scenarios that would explore all three injunctions. You could have someone in your group play a polluter with no remorse. They’d likely need a permanent injunction. You could have someone in your group play a noisy construction business that is working on acquiring quieter equipment. They might just need a preliminary injunction.

An injunction is a court order that stops an individual or a company from doing something. In 1992, Ohio citizens took a local airport to court because it was polluting their creeks and streams. The judge issued a permanent injunction, which meant that the airport had to stop its behavior forever.

There are less long-lasting injunctions that a court can issue. A court can grant a preliminary injunction or a temporary restraining order. These injunctions, as the names suggest, put a temporary end to the supposedly harmful activities until more information is known.

In a group, you could explore these injunctions by making someone the plaintiff and another person the defendant. You could create scenarios in which there’s a need for a permanent injunction, a preliminary injunction, a temporary restraining order, and no injunction at all.

When issuing an injunction, there’s other factors that a judge must consider, like public benefit and whether the defendant is acting in good faith. In one scenario, you could have others in your group testify that any injunction would be harmful to their way of life. In another scenario, you could have the defendant be quite nefarious. Your scenarios could involve a range of cases and situations, from pollution to noise violations. As the group leader, you should be creative.
