A preliminary injunction may be granted in any action under this article, whether
for money damages or otherwise, where it appears that the defendant threatens or is
about to do, or is doing or procuring or suffering to be done, an act in violation
of the claiming authority's rights respecting the subject of the action, and thereby
tending to render a resulting judgment ineffectual. A temporary restraining order may be granted pending a hearing for a preliminary
injunction where it appears that immediate and irreparable injury, loss or damage
will result unless the defendant is restrained before the hearing can be had. A preliminary injunction may be granted only upon notice to the defendant. Notice of the motion may be served with the summons or at any time thereafter and
prior to judgment.
