An injunction is an order of the court which prevents or prohibits an individual or company from doing a particular act or thing.
If a party fails to comply with an injunction, they may face criminal or civil penalties, monetary sanctions and possibly imprisonment. Parties who breach an injunction may also be charged with contempt of court.
