Chapter 7. Civil Actions To Abate Fire Hazards of California Health And Safety Code >> Division 12. >> Part 2. >> Chapter 7.
Whenever, in the judgment of the State Fire Marshal, any
person has engaged in or is about to engage in any acts or practices
which constitute or will constitute a violation of any provision of
this part, or any rule, regulation, or order issued thereunder, at
the request of the State Fire Marshal, the district attorney of the
county in which such acts or practices occur or will occur or the
Attorney General may make application to the superior court for an
order enjoining such acts or practices, or for an order directing
compliance, and upon a showing by the State Fire Marshal that such
person has engaged in or is about to engage in any such acts or
practices, a permanent or temporary injunction, restraining order, or
other order may be granted.
Every civil action brought under the provisions of this
chapter at the request of the State Fire Marshal shall be brought by
the district attorney or Attorney General in the name of the people
of the State of California and any such actions relating to fire
protection may be joined or consolidated.
Any civil action brought pursuant to this chapter shall be
brought in the county in which the action occurs.
In any civil action brought pursuant to this chapter in
which a temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction, or
permanent injunction is sought, it shall not be necessary to allege
or prove at any stage of the proceeding that irreparable damage will
occur should the temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction,
or permanent injunction not be issued; or that the remedy at law is
inadequate, and the temporary restraining order, preliminary
injunction, or permanent injunction shall issue without such
allegations and without such proof.
