Temporary Injunctions

Massingill v. Swanner, No. 05-04-00918-CV, 2005 Tex. App. LEXIS 1733 (Tex. App.—Dallas Mar. 7, 2005, no pet.). (Service of Process)
A trial court does not abuse its discretion by shortening the Rule 21 notice period or ordering substitute service when there is evidence in the record showing the party attempted to avoid service.

Owens-Corning Fiberglass Corp. v. Baker, 838 S.W.2d 838 (Tex. App.—Texarkana 1992, no writ). (Affidavit; Free Speech)
An affidavit can be sufficient evidence to support a temporary injunction if it shows the probable right to relief; proof of a right to relief is not required. Temporary injunctions that prohibit bringing suit in a forum do not violate a party’s free speech rights to bring suit because they do not remove the right to file suit, but merely regulate the location and manner in which a party may bring suit.
