Enforcing a restrictive covenant is perhaps the most straightforward example of how an emergency injunction may be necessary to guard against a potential injury. The purpose of a restrictive covenant is to prohibit another party from acting in a certain way. If they violate that covenant, then, in many cases, getting an injunction is the only practical way to prevent serious, and often irreparable, harm.
