    I know the words but the sentence structure isn't helping me and I'm a new learner of English.

    This is the sentence: " The House of Lords disapproved of the court conducting a trial on affidavit evidence, when the essential purpose of an injunction is to preserve a party's position until trial."

    Sorry guys, I know what it means now. I believe it means that "If the purpose of injunction is to preserve a the same position until trial then why is the court asking for an evidence." I should have read it properly. I'm probably dehydrated :/
