This is INFORMATION and NOT LEGAL ADVICE:
Generally speaking, injunctive relief is a court order saying that a party in a suit must do something specific, or must not do something specific. It is considered an equitable remedy and not monetary.
Declaratory relief means that the court makes an official declaration with respect to the case. This can have consequences that are monetary, but does not in and of itself award money damages.
Punitive relief is generally monetary and means that a party has to pay damages to another party as a punishment (as opposed to simply compensating the other party for injuries). Punitive damages are typically only allowed in extraordinary circumstances or by statute.
I cannot speak to the specific facts of your case, because I am not your lawyer nor am I licensed in CA. If this issue is grave enough for you, consider hiring one who is licensed in your state.
