§ 1502.1. Temporary injunction or restraining order
If, at any time after the receipt of a verified charge, the Attorney General has reason to believe that a respondent has engaged in any unlawful discriminatory practice, the Attorney General may file a petition in the district court in a county in which the subject of the complaint occurs, or in a county in which a respondent resides or transacts business, seeking appropriate temporary injunctive relief against the respondent pending final determination of proceedings pursuant to Section 1101 et seq. of this title. The court shall have power to grant injunctive relief or a restraining order as it deems just and proper, but no relief or order shall be granted except by consent of the respondent or after hearing upon notice to the respondent and a finding by the court that there is reasonable cause to believe that the respondent has engaged in a discriminatory practice. Except as modified by this section, the Oklahoma rules of civil procedure shall apply to an application, and the district court shall have authority to grant or deny the relief sought on conditions as it deems just and equitable. This section is subject to the provisions of Section 1502.7 of this title.
