Report Lies, guitars and a few facts about the Fairy Creek Rainforest blockades in Forests Posted May 8 20 hours ago, Guest Irrelevant argument said: This is what happens when a "journalist" tries to write on a legal ruling but is ignorant of the law. "Irreparable harm" has a distinct and unique legal definition for injunctive relief. It need not be quantified. Broadland ought to leave the criticisms of legal rulings to lawyers. Thanks for your comment. Readers may want to review Verhoeven's judgment, which I reviewed here. In his consideration of whether Teal had suffered "Irreparable Harm," Verhoeven restated the economic arguments that had been presented to him in affidavits prepared by Teal's legal team. While the above commenter would have readers believe the law is too mysterious for anybody but lawyers to understand, there is no mystery about how Verhoeven arrived at his decision that irreparable harm had been done—its in his judgment. But the numbers he uses in his consideration, which were provided by Teal and not questioned in court by either Verhoeven or the defendants' legal team, are deeply flawed. Any journalist could have found the factual information that the lawyers didn't. That's the service journalism is meant to provide.
