In this suit involving rival companies producing similar dietary supplements, the district court granted a preliminary injunction on the grounds that the plaintiff would likely succeed on its breach of contract and misappropriation of trade secrets claims. The district court did not err when it found that the plaintiff carried its burden of proof for each of the four requirements for a preliminary injunction: substantial likelihood of success on the merits, substantial threat of irreparable harm absent an injunction, a balance of hardships in the plaintiff's favor, and no disservice to the public interest. The district court's grant of preliminary injunction is affirmed. 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, No. 12-20599, 03-05-2013.
