is going to get you over the hump for irreparable harm," Sullivan said.
A separate lawsuit against Apple heard at Tuesday's hearing was filed by a different investor, Brian Gralnick. The lawsuit seeks to block not just a vote on Proposal No. 2 but also an advisory "say-on-pay" vote on executives compensation.
Sullivan indicated Tuesday he would rule against Gralnick on his request for an injunction. Apple shares ended regular trading on Tuesday down 17 cents at $459.99.
The case is Greenlight Capital LP, et al., v. Apple Inc., U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York, 13-900.
