Any person, firm, private corporation, or municipal or other public corporation, or
trade association, may maintain an action to enjoin a continuance of any act or acts
in violation of sections 481-1 to 481-7 and, if injured thereby, for the recovery of damages. If, in the action, the court finds that the defendant is violating or has violated
any of the provisions of sections 481-1 to 481-7, it shall enjoin the 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 shall be entitled to recover
from the defendant three times the amount of any actual damages sustained.
Any defendant in an action brought under this section may be compelled to testify
by deposition under chapter 624, or in person before the court in which the action
is brought, and may be examined by the plaintiff, as if on cross-examination, and
the plaintiff shall not be bound by the defendant's testimony; and in addition the
books and records of any such defendant may be brought into court and introduced,
by reference, into evidence.
The defendant may in like manner and subject to like conditions and with like privileges
compel the plaintiff to testify by deposition or otherwise.
