1. The practice.] The temporary injunction may be granted prior to service of the summons.11

Before answer the order may be granted ex parte; after answer, only upon notice, or order to show cause" (though a restraining

12 N. Y. Code Civ. Pro., § 609; Rhodes v. Wheeler, 48 App. Div. 410, 63 N. Y. Supp. 184. (The application upon notice must be made to a Special Term or judge within the judicial district, or in an adjoining county.)

order may issue until the hearing and decision of the application).13

The practice is either (1) to take an order to show cause why an injunction should not be granted, with injunction until the hearing and decision of the motion ; 14 or, (2) an injunction until the further order of the court or judge, with an order to show cause why it should not be continued pending the action; or, (3) an absolute injunction pending the action, or until the further order of the court leaving it for the plaintiff to move to vacate; or, (4) to move on notice, or on order to show cause as a short notice of motion, for an injunction, but without restraint in the meantime,

The first two methods are substantially the same. 15

From an order to show cause with restraint in the meantime, no appeal lies except from the order made after the hearing, or from an order made on motion to vacate or modify, as it is only temporary in character. 16 And the same principle appears applicable to the second mode of application.

A court of equity has no inherent absolute power to grant temporary injunctions, pending action; the authority so to do must be found in the Code.17

Under either the first18 or secondo mode of application security should alike be required in ordinary cases; for such temporary restraint is one form of relief by injunction which the Code provides for, and which the provisions for security contemplate.

The first three methods, obtaining immediate restraint, ex parte, are allowable even without security when the injunction is to stay waste or other damages in an action affecting real property, and is granted by the court or a judge thereof (not by a county judge), either before or after answer, being sustained by the statute as to orders to stay waste.?

Supp. 632 (holding that no counsel fees could be collected where the injunction was by its terms to continue only till the hearing and decision of the motion, and the court denied the motion).
