1) Whether the “serious question” standard for preliminary injunctions continues to be viable after Winter v. Natural Resources Defense Council, Inc.

2) Whether the preliminary injunction was properly granted in regard to the Respondents’ Substantive Due Process and Equal Protection claims.

Last practice November 1st.

Alexis Cherry, Brandon Chen, Catherine Cawley

  1. The “serious question” standard allows courts to grant injunctive relief based on inconsistent, subjective interpretations of a party’s claim.  Should this standard still be used after this Court established a uniform approach for reviewing preliminary injunctions in Winter v. Natural Resources Defense Council, Inc.?

  2. The Fourteenth Amendment guarantees citizens’ due process of law and equal protection under the United States Constitution.  If a law does not burden a fundamental right nor target a suspect class, a state’s legislative classification will be upheld.  Was the preliminary injunction erroneously granted after the Fifteenth Circuit held that the SAME Act violated Respondents’ Substantive Due Process and Equal Protection rights?

Last practice November 1st.
