An injunction is an order of a court of law exercising equitable jurisdiction which directs an individual to either do, or cease doing, a specific action.[1] Cases where a court will order an individual to do an action are far rarer than cases where the court will prohibit an action and are referred to as mandatory injunctions.

Generally speaking an injunction will only issue if damages would be an inadequate remedy in the circumstances.
