In this lesson, we examine the concept of equitable discretion and gain insight into equitable precedent on the subject. This lesson was designed for use by students who have completed study of this topic in their basic remedies class, and want to further refine and expand their understanding of the concept.
On completion of the lesson, the student will be able to:
1. Explain why courts might decide to deny equitable relief.
2. Discuss the problem of continuing supervision, as courts decide whether to grant equitable relief.
3. Analyze situations in which the court weighs the impact on the public in granting injunctive relief.
