New Jersey Injunction and Orders to Show Cause in a Partnership Dispute

Hi, this is Charles Internicola and if you're a New Jersey business owner faced with a partnership dispute you may have a question about what is an Order to Show Cause. An Order to Show Cause is an emergency motion that's filed by the partnership dispute attorney on behalf of his client where he would seek injunctive relief. Injunctive relief is important when it comes to partnership dispute because these disputes have the potential for unraveling an entire business, impacting sales and more importantly diminishing the value of a partner. So an Order to Show Cause refers to the emergency motion that the attorney would file with the court where he would seek injunctive relief. Forms of injunctive relief that are common in a partnership dispute include: an injunction prohibiting a partner from moving assets or diverting assets to another business, relief that would prohibit one partner from locking out another from business operations, and where the court orders that one partner not establish a competing business. There are many variations of injunctive relief and many different ways it applies. In my book, "The NY and NJ Partnership Dispute Book", I go through an in depth evaluation of New Jersey Orders to Show Cause and in our evaluation we give examples of various forms of injunctive relieve. If you like, go to our website and request a complimentary copy of the book. I definitely recommend reading the section on orders to show cause and evaluate how it can help you with your potential dispute.
