Richter v. Richter
A prayer for injunctive relief is addressed to the sound discretion of the court. The self-represented plaintiff, Elizabeth Richter, appealed from the judgment of the trial court denying her motion for a permanent injunction. The motion requested an order that a certain memorandum of decision of the trial court be removed from the court record and the Internet. In that decision, the court denied the plaintiff's motions to open the judgment of dissolution and granted the motion of the defendant, Alexander Richter, for attorneys' fees. The Appellate Court upheld that judgment on appeal. In this appeal, the Appellate Court found the plaintiff's claims, including one alleging judicial bias, to be without merit. Mindful that a prayer for injunctive relief is addressed to the sound discretion of the court, the Appellate Court concluded that the trial court did not abuse its discretion in denying the plaintiff's motion.
