§47-6-8. Remedy in equity; injunction against sale of security.
Any borrower of money or other thing may exhibit a bill in
equity against the lender, and compel him to discover upon oath
the money or thing really lent, and all bargains, contracts, or
shifts relative to such loan, and the interest or consideration
of the same; and, if it appear that more than lawful interest was
reserved, the lender shall recover his principal money or other
thing with six percent interest only, but shall recover no costs.
If property has been conveyed to secure the payment of the debt,
and a sale thereof is about to be made, or is apprehended, an
injunction may be awarded to prevent such sale pending the suit.
But nothing in this section shall have the effect of permitting a
recovery on any contract which is void under the provisions of
the following article.
