Any person, firm, partnership, corporation, joint-stock
company, or trade association may maintain a proceeding to enjoin
a continuance of any act or acts in violation of the provisions
of this article and, if injured thereby, for the recovery of
damages in the circuit court of the county wherein said article
is alleged to have been or is being violated. If, in such
proceeding, the court shall find that the defendant is violating
or has violated any of the provisions of this article, it shall
enjoin such defendant from a continuance thereof. It shall not
be necessary that actual damages to the plaintiff be alleged or
proved. In addition to such injunctive relief, the plaintiff in
said action shall be entitled to recover from the defendant three
times the amount of the actual damages, if any, sustained.
