Temporary Injunctions: Pre-Claim Relief Option

Bangkok Post, Corporate Counsellor Column

The Consumer Case Procedure Act (CCPA) was enacted with a primary intent to provide better protection to historically disadvantaged consumers.  One focus area was in provisional measures before judgment. Section 56 of the CCPA provides the grounds for support of provisional measures before judgment.  While there are some initial similarities, the CCPA goes further than what is currently provided by the Civil Procedure Code (CPC) and the Regulations for Intellectual and International Trade Cases B.E. 2540, which seek to prevent persons from committing acts that harm or impair the rights of a claimant prior to judgment. This article provides an overview of the procedures.
