A party moving for a preliminary injunction in a federal civil lawsuit must:
• Notify the adverse party of its intent to seek a preliminary injunction.
• Provide security in an amount that the court considers proper to pay the costs and damages sustained by any party found to have been wrongfully enjoined or restrained.
(FRCP 65(a)(1), (c).)
A preliminary injunction may become permanent if the court grants a party's request for a preliminary injunction and later enters a final judgment granting that party a permanent injunction. However, if, after granting a preliminary injunction, the court enters a final judgment against the requesting party, the preliminary injunction is no longer effective.
