Temporary restraining order (TRO): Prohibits a person from
an action that is likely to cause irreparable harm. This differs
from an injunction in that it may be granted immediately, without
notice to the opposing party, and without a hearing. It is intended
to last only until a hearing can be held.
Testimony: Evidence presented orally by witnesses during
trials or before grand juries.
Transcript: A written record of what was said, either in a
proceeding such as a trial or during some other conversation, as in
a transcript of a hearing or oral deposition.
