J.J. (SEAL.] Injunction.

WInjunctions are granted before answer, to restrain proceedings in suits at law, or in cases of waste, or other injuries of a nature so urgent that mischief would ensue if the complainant were to wait till the answer is put in. In such cases, the court will not leave the party to sustain the injury, and afterward seek redress; but will interpose its authority to restrain such proceedings as are contrary to equity and good conscience.

The party applying for an injunction must file his bill supported by oath or affirmation, and give bond as required by the statute, and where the application is to stay proceedings on a judgment at law, he must endorse on the bill a release of errors, under his hand and seal. Rev. L. 195, 6.
