RE: Rule 65, N.D.R.Civ.P., Injunctions
Staff has prepared amendments to Rule 65 based on the federal form and style
amendments. The amendments are intended make the rule more easily understood and to
make style and terminology consistent throughout the rules. The amendments also aim to
modernize the rule, removing references to obsolete authority and practices.
The existing rule and the federal rule are substantially different. Form and style
changes are proposed. The proposed amendments to Rule 65 are attached along with a copy
of the amendments to the federal rule.
