54-1815. Violation of act — Injunction. Whenever any person is found violating any of the provisions of this chapter, the department or the board, without regard to criminal prosecution, may maintain an action in the name of the state of Idaho to enjoin said person from doing any of the acts above described, said action to be brought in the county in which said acts are claimed to have been or are being committed; and upon the filing of a verified petition in the district court of the county where said acts have been or are being committed, the court, or a judge thereof at chambers, if satisfied by affidavit or otherwise that the acts complained of have been or are being committed, shall issue a temporary injunction, without bond, as a matter of course, enjoining the defendant from the commission of any such act or acts. A copy of said verified complaint shall be served upon the defendant, and the proceedings shall thereafter be conducted as in other civil cases. If the commission of said act or acts be established, the court, or a judge thereof at chambers, shall enter a decree perpetually enjoining said defendant from committing said act or acts. In case of violation of any injunction issued under the provisions of this section, the court, or a judge thereof, at chambers, may summarily try and punish the offender for his contempt of court.
