IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF OREGON
TERA ANN HARRIS,
Civ. No. 3:22-cv-1739-MC
JUSTICE CENTER MULTNOMAH
COUNTY JAIL, et al.
Plaintiff, proceeding pro se, seeks a preliminary injunction, ECF No. 7, ordering
Defendants to take certain actions with respect to Plaintiff’s medical needs. A party seeking a
preliminary injunction “must establish that he is likely to succeed on the merits, that he is likely to
suffer irreparable harm in the absence of preliminary relief, that the balance of equities tips in his
favor, and that an injunction is in the public interest.” Winter v. Natural Res. Defense Council,
Inc., 129 S. Ct. 365, 374 (2008). The mere possibility of irreparable harm is not enough. Rather,
the plaintiff must establish that this harm is likely. Alliance for the Wild Rockies v. Cottrell, 632
F.3d 1127, 1131 (9th Cir. 2011). The standards for issuing a temporary restraining order are like
those required for a preliminary injunction. Lockheed Missile & Space Co., Inc. v. Hughes Aircraft
Co., 887 F. Supp. 1320, 1323 (N.D. Ca. 1995).
The Court agrees with Judge Kasubhai’s Orders, ECF Nos. 9, 14, pointing out the
deficiencies in Plaintiff’s complaints and demonstrating why Plaintiff fails to state a claim.
