46 USC 41306 - Injunctive relief sought by complainants
Sec. 41306. Injunctive relief sought by complainants(a)
After filing a complaint with the Federal Maritime Commission under section 41301 of this title, the complainant may bring a civil action in a district court of the United States to enjoin conduct in violation of this part.
The action must be brought in the judicial district in which—
(1) the Commission has brought a civil action against the defendant under section 41307 (a) of this title; or
(2) the defendant resides or transacts business, if the Commission has not brought such an action.
Remedies by Court.—
After notice to the defendant, and a showing that the standards for granting injunctive relief by courts of equity are met, the court may grant a temporary restraining order or preliminary injunction for a period not to exceed 10 days after the Commission has issued an order disposing of the complaint.
A defendant prevailing in a civil action under this section shall be allowed reasonable attorney fees to be assessed and collected as part of the costs of the action.
