PLAINTIFFS ARE ENTITLED TO AN ORDER TEMPORARILY RESTRAINING
AND PRELIMINARILY ENJOINING THE BOYZ FROM
PESTERING OR BOTHERING THE GURLZ IN ANY WAY WHATSOEVER
In determining whether a temporary restraining order should be entered, the primary consideration is whether irreparable harm will result to THE GURLZ before the adverse party can be heard in opposition. Rule 85(b), Catdom Rules of Procedure. In determining whether a preliminary injunction should be entered, the primary considerations are (1) the likelihood of irreparable harm to THE GURLZ if the preliminary injunction is denied, (2) the likelihood of harm to THE BOYZ if the preliminary injunction is granted, (3) the likelihood that THE GURLZ will succeed on the merits, and (4) the public interest.
In this case, all of these considerations weigh heavily in THE GURLZ' favor.
A. THE GURLZ Will Suffer Substantial and Immediate Irreparable Harm If The Requested Relief is Denied.
In this case the harm to THE GURLZ if a restraining order is denied is immediate, substantial, and irreparable. As stated in their affidavits, THE GURLZ are unable to carry on with their daily lives without feeling threatened and fearful. It is self-evident that while some of this harm may be compensable in samoleons, most is not.
B. THE BOYZ Will Suffer No Harm Whatsoever If The Requested Relief is Granted.
THE BOYZ will suffer no harm, irreparable or otherwise, if THE GURLZ are issued the requested restraining order. THE BOYZ' reputations will not be harmed, they will not be prevented from doing their disgusting tom things, nor will their ability to communicate via the Internet be impacted in the slightest. Because that is so, a balancing of the equities in this case tips substantially in favor of THE GURLZ.
C. THE GURLZ Are Highly Likely to Succeed on the Merits of their Claims Against THE BOYZ.
THE GURLZ are prepared to offer substantial evidence that injustice has been done to them and is likely to be done again. Thus, THE GURLZ are likely to succeed on the merits of this matter.
D. Granting the Relief Sought By This Motion Would Be in The Public Interest.
Prior to the attacks by THE BOYZ, THE GURLZ all enjoyed a good reputation and standing in the community. To permit THE BOYZ to continue their nefarious activities and attempts to publicly slander, humiliate, embarrass, and defame THE GURLZ, should not be tolerated, and is clearly not in the public interest.
Because the likelihood of irreparable harm to THE GURLZ is substantial if the relief sought by this motion is denied, (2) the likelihood of harm to THE BOYZ if the preliminary injunction is granted is negligible, (3) the likelihood that THE GURLZ will succeed on the merits is substantial, and (4) granting that relief would be in the public interest, this Court should enter a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction prohibiting THE BOYZ from pestering or bothering THE GURLZ in any way whatsoever.
