The trial court erred in granting a temporary restraining order on an ex parte basis in this case.  The declaration supporting the request for the TRO did not present admissible evidence of any impending emergency that required relief on an ex parte basis, as opposed to a noticed motion.  The case challenged the Governor’s emergency order regarding voting by mail in the November elections for which ballots had not yet even been finalized.  Moroever, the plaintiff did not properly serve the Governor by 10 am the morning before appearing on the ex parte application and did not serve a copy of the proposed order on him until the following day, all of which violated Cal. Rules of Court, rules 3.1201-3.1203.
