PROMULGATES FIRST REVISION
OF EQUITY PROCEDURE IN
Granting or Preliminary Orden with?
out Notice Prohibited?Temporary
Restraining Orders Restricted,
Washington, Nov. ????In promul- (
gating today the first revision of the
equity rules of federal courts in the
last (0 years, the supreme court of
the United states prohibited the
granting of preliminary injunctions
without notice ami restricted the
granting of temporary 'restraining or?
ders The court embodied In the new
rule many of the points of the Clayton
anti-Injunction bill for which labor
leaders have been fighting which has
passed the house and waits in the sen
Instead Of temporary restraining
orden being issued without notice
upon presentation to a federal judge
on general allegation that immediate
and i: reparable damage is about to
be Inflicted, the new rule requires that
It must be shown by specific facts set
forth In affidavits or otherwise that
?ueh damages win result, when a
temporary restraining order is issued
a hearing on the injunction must be
given within ten days, Heretofore no
time limit was fixed by the rubs.
The new rules do not require those
procuring the restraining order to
give a bond or the judge to set forth
In the order his reasons for grrtnlng
it. These were provisions in the Clay?
Chief Justice White did ncd refer to
the anti-injunction rule In announc?
ing the changes in the old rules, but
did emphasize the statement that the
revision was designed to simplify pro?
cedure, remove delay and reduce cost.
The antique form of pleading is ab?
rogated In the new rules for the mod?
ern forms of "code." United States
judges are required, with few excep?
tions, to take testimony in court in?
stead of appointing referees to do so;
and appellate courts are authorized
more generally to dispose of suits In?
stead of reversing on errors.
