From the Publisher"Every lawyer who studies or participates in our curious enterprise of constitutional government through courts should scrutinize Douglas Laycock's outstanding book.
"Professor Laycock has written a book that every litigator should know. He explodes a powerful myth and shows us through analysis of cases from every state and the federal system that "irreparable injury" is a formula invoked to bless results based on other reasons....Laycock patiently and ably catalogs the circumstances in which specific relief is granted and for each one shows us that irreparable injury is not the court's concern."—Litigation
"A great service to the law—first rate Grand Style stuff,"—Ian Macneil, Northwestern University
"I was reminded of Cardozo, of Chafee, and even of Maitland in the power Laycock seemed to have over the ideas and in the sweep of materials he was able to bring to bear. Writers, judges, and lawyers will all rely on his final effort to restate the real forces behind the irreparable injury rule as specific rules or principles."—Dan B. Dobbs, University of Arizona
"[A] perceptive work, and a....very useful source...of recent American cases taking unorthodox views of specific remedies....[T]his is an interesting, well-argued and thoughtful book."—Civil Justice Quarterly
