Amendment of Civil Rule 1531; Misc. No. 004516

[30 Pa.B. 2764]


   And Now, to wit, this 5th day of May, 2000, it is hereby Ordered and Decreed that Local Rule 1531 be amended to read as follows:

   (a)  In non-emergency cases already assigned to a judge, applications for preliminary injunctions shall be governed by the provisions of Rule *206(B)(2).

   (b)  In non-emergency cases not yet assigned to a judge, applications for preliminary injunctions shall be by petition, in conformity with Rule 206(B)(2), which shall be filed with the Office of Judicial Support to be time-stamped and docketed and then brought to the Court Administrator by the applicant to obtain a hearing date. Thereafter, the applicant will be notified of the scheduled hearing date by the Court. The applicant, once notified, will thereafter notify all interested parties of the scheduled hearing date and time.

   (c)  Where petitioner seeks a preliminary or special injunction prior to notice or hearing, his petition shall have an appropriate order attached thereto. The Court Administrator will determine the appropriate judge to whom the petitioner shall promptly present the matter.

   (d)  Where a party against whom a preliminary injunction has been granted prior to notice or hearing shall move to dissolve it prior to the date set by the court for hearing, either for insufficient security or for any other cause, he shall give such notice of the hearing on his application to the petitioner as the court may direct. This notice shall set forth the grounds for the application to dissolve.

By the Court:

President Judge
