1. Injunctive relief; damages and costs.  Any person damaged or who is threatened with loss or injury by reason of a violation of section 2983 may bring a civil action in the Superior Court in the county where he resides, to prevent, restrain or enjoin the violation or threatened violation. If in that action a violation or threatened violation of section 2983 shall be established, the court may enjoin and restrain or otherwise prohibit the violation or threatened violation. In that action it shall not be necessary that actual damages to the plaintiff be alleged or proved.
