Procedure for preliminary injunctions

While Opulent Life Church v. City of Holly Springs turned on First Amendment religion clause issues about the legality of a zoning ordinance, it offers some general insights about preliminary injunction practice.  No. 12-60052 (Sept. 27, 2012).  Irreparable injury can potentially be shown from evidence about the likely loss of a lease, or a looming lack of building capacity (although the capacity issue in this case focused on religious practice.)  Id. at 27.  Even if evidence of injury is strong, the party opposing a preliminary injunction should have the opportunity to be heard and present evidence about the potential harm to it of an injunction so that the equities can be balanced.  Id. at 28-29.
