Likelihood of Success

Website | RSS | Twitter

A potpourri of legal and nonlegal topics of general interest. As the blawg itself puts it: “Likelihood of success on the merits” — 'likelihood of success' for short — is a term used by courts to describe one of the factors considered when evaluating whether to grant a preliminary injunction: In order to merit the 'unusual' remedy of preliminary relief, the party that wants the injunction has to be able to convince the court, on a preliminary basis — meaning before the record is fully developed — that one of the reasons it is entitled to temporary relief is that it will probably win the case anyway."

Author: Ronald D. Coleman is a New York lawyer and author. Coleman also writes Likelihood of Confusion.
