Jay Bharat Developers, Inc. v. Minidis, B199294

In a claim arising out of a termination of a franchise agreement, grant of defendants' motion for preliminary injunction is affirmed over claims that: 1) the trial court erroneously followed Burger King Corp. v. Hall and refused to consider plaintiffs' alleged evidence of fraud in evaluating the merits of defendants' request for an injunction; 2) the trial court should have found that defendants' termination of the franchise agreement was proper before granting their request for a preliminary injunction; 3) defendants' unclean hands precluded the issuance of a preliminary injunction; and 4) the trial court should never have entertained defendants' motion given that the litigation had been ordered into arbitration before respondents sought injunctive relief.
