IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
NO. 4:11CV00776 JLH
OIL PATCH WATER & SEWER SERVICES, LLC;
and OIL PATCH RENTAL SERVICES, INC.
Jason Phillips has filed a motion for temporary restraining order preliminary injunction. He
alleges that the defendants retaliated against him for filing this lawsuit.
Rule 65(b) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure provides, in pertinent part:
(1) Issuing Without Notice. The court may issue a temporary restraining order
without written or oral notice to the adverse party or its attorney only if:
(A) specific facts in an affidavit or a verified complaint clearly show that
immediate and irreparable injury, loss, or damage will result to the movant before the
adverse party can be heard in opposition; and
(B) the movant’s attorney certifies in writing any efforts made to give notice
and the reasons why it should not be required.
The motion for temporary restraining order does not include a certification by Phillips’ attorney as
to any efforts made to give notice and the reasons why notice should not be required. Therefore, the
Court will not grant a temporary restraining order at this time. When notice is given to the
defendants and they have had an opportunity to respond, the Court will consider whether a hearing
on the motion for a preliminary injunction may be needed.
For the reasons stated, the motion for temporary restraining order is DENIED. Document
#3. The motion for preliminary injunction is held in abeyance until the defendants are given notice
and an opportunity to be heard. Document #3.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 7th day of November, 2011.
J. LEON HOLMES
