(1) Any person or the Attorney General, on behalf of the state, may institute a civil proceeding against a person who violates the provisions of ORS 358.920, 358.945, 358.950 or 390.235. In such proceeding, relief shall be granted in conformity with the principles that govern the granting of injunctive relief in other civil cases, except that no showing of special or irreparable damage to the person shall have to be made. Upon the execution of the proper bond against damages for an injunction improvidently granted and a showing of immediate danger of significant loss or damage, a temporary restraining order or a preliminary injunction may be issued in any such action before a final determination on the merits.
(2) In any proceeding brought under this section, the court may allow the prevailing party to recover costs, expert witness fees, and reasonable attorney fees at trial and upon appeal.
(3) The Attorney General may, upon timely application, intervene in any civil action or proceeding brought under subsection (1) of this section if the Attorney General certifies that in the opinion of the Attorney General, the action or proceeding is of general public importance. In such action or proceeding, the state shall be entitled to the same relief as if the Attorney General instituted the action or proceeding.
