What does the Prior Restraints tag mean?

This tag describes a situation where the sending/suing party attempts to prevent the receiving/defending party from engaging in some form of speech in the future. This tag is appropriate for cases where a suing party seeks an injunction to bar future defamatory (or otherwise tortious) statements.
