    The San Francisco 49ers have filed a lawsuit in their attempts to prevent a Santa Clara County oversight Board from pulling back the $30 million that was to help fund the 49ers new stadium in Santa Clara. The $30 million is only a small percentage of the overall project, but there are some concerns about the implications on the bigger loans the 49ers are dealing with for the project. The 49ers have asked for a temporary restraining order (TRO) to prevent the County from using the funds for any non-stadium purpose. To obtain the TRO, the 49ers need to prove, among other things, that they are entitled to some kind of permanent relief, the likelihood of success on the merits, the harm is imminent, the extent to which the plaintiff is being irreparably harmed by the defendant's conduct versus the extent to which the defendant will suffer irreparable harm if the TRO issues.
