ORDER DENYING EX PARTE MOTION FOR A TEMPORARY RESTRAINING
ORDER AND PRELIMINARY INJUNCTION*fn1
On April 1, 2013, Plaintiffs, proceeding in propria persona, filed an unnoticed ex parte motion for a temporary restraining order and a preliminary injunction. Since a preliminary injunction may be issued "only on notice to the adverse party," Fed. R. Civ. P. 56(a)(1), the portion of Plaintiffs' motion seeking a preliminary injunction is denied.
Further, Plaintiffs' conclusory statements in their request do not demonstrate that they have a probability of succeeding on the merits of their claims, or that they risk suffering irreparable harm if an injunction does not issue. A & M Records, Inc. v. Napster, Inc., 239 F.3d 1004, 1013 (9th Cir. 2001) (discussing injunction standard). Therefore, Plaintiffs' motion for a temporary restraining order (ECF No. 2) is denied.
