Publisher Description

Greenpeace appeals the trial court's grant of a temporary injunction in favor of Exxon Mobil Corporation. On May 27, 2003, Greenpeace staged an organized protest at Exxon Mobil headquarters in Irving, Texas. Concerned that similar protests would disrupt Exxon Mobil's annual meeting scheduled for the following day, Exxon Mobil immediately obtained a temporary restraining order that prohibited similar protest activities. Thereafter, a hearing was held and the trial court entered a temporary injunction enjoining certain activities on the part of the protestors until a trial on the merits could be completed. Greenpeace urges four issues on appeal. It claims the trial court abused its discretion and erred because it exceeded its jurisdiction when it enjoined activities outside the forum state, the injunction violates Greenpeace's First Amendment rights of free expression, the evidence is legally and factually insufficient to support the injunction, and the injunction is unreasonably vague. We affirm the order of the trial court granting the temporary injunction.
