212 InjunctionPreliminary injunction would be issued to prevent village from enforcing ordinance prohibiting game-playing in public places without permit, inasmuch as parents were likely to succeed on merits of their claims that ordinance violated children’s due process rights and right to assemble, irreparable harm would occur absent injunction in form of children being confined to their homes, there was no remedy at law, and village would suffer no harm in that its legitimate end of keeping streets and sidewalks safe could be pursued through other ordinances.
