Interim remedy

interim remedy: in civil litigation, a court order, also known as ‘interim relief’, that gives temporary relief to a party to the litigation pending the full trial of the dispute and the parties’ rights being finally adjudicated upon; for example, an interim injunction may be ordered as a way of preventing one party from causing irremediable prejudice to the other pending a full trial. The range of interim remedies UK civil courts may grant are set out in Part 25 of the Civil Procedure Rules.
