Rule 692. Disobedience


Disobedience of an injunction may be punished by the court or judge, in term time or in vacation, as a contempt. In case of such disobedience, the complainant, his agent or attorney, may file in the court in which such injunction is pending or with the judge in vacation, his affidavit stating what person is guilty of such disobedience and describing the acts constituting the same; and thereupon the court or judge shall cause to be issued an attachment for such person, directed to the sheriff or any constable of the proper county, and requiring such officer to arrest the person therein named and have him before the court or judge at the time and place named in such writ. On return of such attachment, the judge shall proceed to hear proof; and if satisfied that such person has disobeyed the injunction, either directly or indirectly, he shall be committed to jail without bail until he purges himself of such contempt, in such manner and form as the court or judge may direct.
