An appeal from a refusal to grant an interlocutory injunction must be taken promptly

Polar Supplies v Cape Dorset 2013 NUCA 11:

There appears to be some confusion here about the proper role of an interlocutory injunction. Such an injunction is designed to hold the status quo pending a trial. It has now been over 2 1/2 years since the first injunction application, and there is no reason why this action could not have been taken to trial. A trial court could by now have determined the damages suffered by the appellant, rendering moot any question of irreparable harm.
