Temporary injunctions can be a powerful tool to obtain relief from the court system, at least on a temporary basis, before a lawsuit is fully litigated. To obtain a temporary injunction, a party must show that the remedies available at law are inadequate to prevent irreparable harm. Cherne Industries, Inc. v. Grounds & Associates, Inc. 278 N.W.2d, 81, 92 (Minn. 1979). In deciding whether a party has met this showing, the Court looks to 5 factors:
(1) The parties’ relationship before the dispute arose;
(2) A balancing of the harms between the parties based on the issuance or lack thereof of a temporary injunction;
(3) The likely outcome of the underlying litigation;
(4) The public policies involved in the litigation;
(5) The administrative burdens involved in judicial supervision and enforcement of a temporary injunction.
