In this column, Jenner & Block Partner Michael T. Brody highlights the case of MillerCoors v. Anheuser-Busch, an appeal that arose from advertising-related litigation.  The Seventh Circuit remanded the matter to the district court because that court’s ruling did not comply with two Federal Rules of Civil Procedure: 65(d) and 62(d).  Mike explains the implications of each rule and leaves litigants and district courts with two take-aways.  “First, the Seventh Circuit requires that injunctions are contained in separate, self-contained documents ...  Second, if a district court enters a preliminary injunction and a party appeals, the parties should tread carefully if they return to the district court to modify that injunction.”
