§60-6-17. Suit to abate nuisances; injunction.
The commission, its agents, the attorney general, the
prosecuting attorney, or a citizen of the county or municipality
where a nuisance as defined in section sixteen of this article is
located, may maintain a suit in equity in the name of the state to
abate and perpetually enjoin the same. Courts of equity shall have
jurisdiction thereof. The injunction may be granted at the
commencement of the suit and no bond shall be required. On the
finding that the material allegations of the bill are true, the
court or judge thereof in vacation shall order the injunction for
such period of time as it or he may think proper, with the right to
dissolve the injunction upon the application of the owner of the
place, if a proper case is shown for such dissolution.
The continuance of the injunction as provided in this section
may be ordered, although the place complained of may not at the
time of hearing be unlawfully used.
