Section 9-17-16Injunctions - Issuance against board, etc.

(a) No temporary restraining order or injunction of any kind shall be granted against the board or the members thereof or against the Attorney General or any district attorney or against any agent, employee or representative of the board restraining the board or any of its members or any of its agents, employees or representatives or the Attorney General or any district attorney, from enforcing any of the provisions of this article or any rule, regulation or order made under this article, except after due notice to the members of the board and to all other defendants and after a hearing at which it shall be clearly shown to the court that the act done or threatened is without sanction of law and, if enforced against the complaining party, will cause an irreparable injury. The judgment or order of the court granting temporary injunctive relief shall state the nature and extent of the probable invalidity of any provision of this article or of any rule, regulation or order made under this article involved in such suit and shall also contain a clear statement of the probable damage relied upon by the court as justifying the temporary relief.



(b) No temporary injunctive relief of any kind, including a temporary restraining order, against the board or the members thereof or its agents, employees or representatives or the Attorney General or any district attorney shall become effective until the plaintiff shall execute a bond to the state with sufficient surety in an amount to be fixed by the court, reasonably sufficient to indemnify all persons who may suffer damage by reason of the violation pendente lite by the complaining party of the provisions of this article or of any rule, regulation or order complained of. Such bond shall be approved by the judge of the court in which the civil action is pending, and the court may, from time to time on motion and with notice to the parties, increase or decrease the amount of the bond and may require new or additional sureties as the facts may warrant. Such bond shall be for the use and benefit of all persons who may suffer damage by reason of the violation pendente lite of this article or of any provision, rule, regulation or order complained of in such civil action, and any person so suffering damage may bring a civil action on such bond before the expiration of six months after any provision of this article or of any rule, regulation or order complained of shall be finally held to be valid in whole or in part or such civil action against the board or the members thereof shall be finally disposed of.
