What Are Injunctions?

Injunctions are court orders in a civil suit that prevent the defendant from performing a certain activity or force them to perform a certain act. A court may order an injunction against a defendant to protect the plaintiff or preserve evidence in a lawsuit. 

What Is an Injunction Bond? 

An injunction bond is a type of court surety bond that indemnifies a defendant from foreseeable losses due to dismissal of a lawsuit or unlawful accusations. The plaintiff must cover damages and court expenses the defendant incurs if the court determines the injunction was unnecessary. 

Injunction surety bonds may also be referred to as TRO bonds, or temporary restraining order bonds. 

How Do Injunction Bonds Work? 

Injunction surety bonds are contracts that legally bind three parties: 

  1. Principal: The plaintiff who purchases the bond from the surety
  2. Surety: Company that issues the bond and backs the principal
  3. Obligee: The defendant placed under the injunction 

Bonding helps prevent unlawful accusations by giving the defendant the right to recover damages from the plaintiff for wrongful injunctions. 

Types of Injunctions

There are three primary types of injunctions: 

  • Temporary Injunctions: Short-term court orders also known as temporary restraining orders (TROs)
  • Preliminary Injunctions: Pre-judgment court orders that last for the duration of the case
  • Permanent Injunctions: Long-term and final court judgments that indefinitely stop or force actions 

The injunction type will impact the surety bond amount, duration and cost. For example, TRO bonds for temporary restraining orders are cheaper and quicker to get than permanent injunction bonds. 

How Much Do Injunction Bonds Cost? 

The court will determine the injunction bond amount necessary for each unique case. Injunction bond premiums typically cost just 1–3% of the total bond amount, however exact pricing varies based on credit score.
